This visualisation provides a series of interactive graphs compiled by the Assembly’s Research and Information Service (RaISe), which offer a snapshot of government funding allocated to address key challenges arising from the effects of the pandemic in Northern Ireland (NI). The series relies on available government data as of 24 November 2020; highlighting how that funding has or will be administered through a range of targeted initiatives introduced either centrally by Treasury or at devolved level by the Executive or its individual Departments. The intention is simply to present the relevant data using accessible formats; thereby aiming to support greater openness and transparency of those data, facilitating engagement with them. Ultimately, the series seeks to increase government accountability at both central and devolved levels, for their collective and individual responses to Covid and its many impacts. In future, RaISe will update the series in line with future issuance of government figures. Please note that this visualisation is an updated version of one published in September 2020. This new version contains data up to 24 November 2020.
