The Department of Justice and Equality is undergoing an extensive change programme. Our reform programme includes ambitious actions across a broad range of areas including leadership and management; culture and human resources; communications; and governance.

Further information on recent key reforms implemented.

These reforms are supporting us to be more effective in the important work we do for the Government and the Irish public in creating a safer and fairer Ireland.

Culture and Values

In March 2016 we launched our new Culture and Values Charter.  This was developed through talking and listening to our colleagues in the Department, our agencies, civil society and other government departments.

Our objective is a more engaged, open and listening culture to better support and empower our people to live our core values in carrying out the Department’s work. We will support these values with a range of policies and actions plans, including in HR, Communications and Customer Service.
