UNISON Northern Ireland

UNISON Led Partnerships

Over the past 15 years UNISON has initiated a series of unique Collaborative Partnerships with health employers in Northern Ireland on a wide range of projects producing real outcomes on improved care and satisfaction for patients, clients, health and social care workers alike.

In October 2015 we showcased this work in a publication in a major international conference held in Belfast. At the conference senior health employers, UNISON reps and other public service/community sector participants explored the future development of these unique models at a time when critical change is needed.

Rosemount House

Former UNISON President Margaret McKee chose Rosemount House as her presidential project for 2017 – 2018.

Rosemount House is a residential home setup for homeless men, suffering with alcohol addiction, drug addiction and mental health problems. Their unique approach provides a long-term rehabilitation programme for residents.
