Northern Ireland

Trust in charities in Northern Ireland has decreased significantly in recent years. As in the rest of the UK and Ireland, media stories of high CEO pay and charity running costs have dented the public’s faith in the not-for-profit sector. MLAs have also been very critical of high CEO salaries, but are also very positive about political engagement by charities at Stormont.
