A major role which TADA plays in the community is our dedication to bringing many different communities together which lays the ground for community dialogue. This helps to better the understanding between all the different groups within the overall community. This promotes the idea of A Shared Future among all, there are no outsiders and challenges sectarianism & racism.
The Good Relations Duty
A public authority when carrying out its functions relating to Northern Ireland, must have regard to the desirability of promoting good relations between persons of different religious belief, political opinion or racial group.
Section 75 (2) of the Northern Ireland Act 1998
