People Issues Resolution Coordinating Unit

The People Issues Resolution Coordinating Unit was established through a mandate from the office of the Prime Minister (2010). The importance of such a body was realised as the Ministry sought overall improvement and standardisation of all services under its umbrella. It was mandated that the unit treats with time-sensitive issues, particularly those which are not being adequately handled by the bureaucracy.
The People Issues Resolution Coordinating Unit remains committed to ensuring that in its duties, its members maintain and uphold clear guidelines of integrity, equity, confidentiality, respect, natural justice, and professionalism. All issues shall be addressed promptly, fairly and impartially.

Each client who is under the purview of the Ministry is entitled to equal access to services. The civil and religious liberties of clients, including the right to independence, personal decisions, and knowledge of available choices, are acknowledged by the unit.

Staff at the People Issues Resolution Coordinating Unit, from left to right are Ms.Beverly Lewis, Ms.Afesha Homeward, Mr. Jai Rampersad (Senior People Issue Interface Officer), Ms. Malisa Ramkissoon and Ms. Aniesha Sucre
