Death is not the end
We all die eventually but, before we do, most of us encounter death many times. Not all of us handle it well. Additional support could help.
Badger baiting: cruel blood sport still rife
The levels of animal cruelty we are prepared to tolerate tell us a lot about the levels of civilisation our society has reached.
Poverty has many faces
New research reaffirms an old oddity – Northern Ireland has the lowest rate of poverty of any UK region. However, that’s not the whole story.
Money might be tight, but Northern Ireland has to treat vulnerable children better
The High Court this week declared that the rights of two children with sight loss were breached when authorities failed to help get them to school. This grim story points to a bigger problem facing NI.

A huge new report, years in the making, says that the community and voluntary sector’s increasing importance needs to be fully embraced. The private, public and third sectors all need to work together to build the best-possible future.
Seamus McAleavey looks back at his time at NICVA
Modesty is such a rare quality among leaders in these days of “influencers” and social media braggarts that it can be disconcerting to come across it.
The third sector in a digital world: room for improvement
Research from late last year shows that organisations in Northern Ireland are not all fully comfortable in the modern digital age – but, with a bit of support, the right improvements are achievable.
