The Victims and Survivors Forum is also established in legislation through the 2006 Order. It is a place for consultation and discussion with victims and survivors.
The Forum accommodates the opposing views amongst its members and seeks to build understanding on these views, and ultimately reach a place of consensus. Collectively, the Forum guides the Commission in our work of contributing towards a more reconciled society through addressing the needs of those most impacted by the Troubles and its lasting legacy.
A Pilot Forum ran from September 2009 until June 2010 and the first operational Forum was appointed in June 2012.
The Commissioner serves as Chair of the Forum and the public figure of the Commission who coalesces the many individual voices of Forum members into one united voice.
In August 2015, the decision was made to appoint Forum members via an open, transparent and competency-based process.
The key competencies were developed in partnership with PWC and defined as:
- Emotional intelligence
- Emotional resilience
- Effective communication
- Collaborative skills
- Influencing skills
We also asked applicants to consider from the outset whether they were able to meet the key requirements of the role which included:
- Being able to volunteer their time to working with other victims and survivors
- Being able to engage with others in a competent and ethical way that respects equality and values diversity
- Willingness to abide by the practical requirements of the role
In fulfilling the role of promoting reconciliation and the government Strategy requirement that the Forum is balanced, before final appointment of members to the Forum, consideration was given to the demographic breakdown of appointable applicants. These included:
- Geographical location
- Community background (primarily PUL / CNR)
- Origin of harm caused (paramilitary organisation / state forces / other)
- Type of harm caused (injured / carer / bereaved)
These measures sought to produce a Forum that worked collaboratively and inclusively towards a common good.
The main objective of this project is to evaluate the learning during the life of the Forum, whether changing to an open, competency based process offered additional benefit and value for money and whether we are we convening a Forum in the best possible way; from design, recruitment, operational management and demonstrating its impact.
Successful applicants will be required to undertake an Access NI Disclosure check at a cost of £18/£33. A person's criminal record will not, in itself, debar that person from being appointed to this post. Any information given will be treated in the strictest confidence.
