Decorum NI is an organisation that supports and empowers members of the security forces who served during the Troubles in Northern Ireland, in the period of Op Banner from 1969-2007.
Activities are coordinated from the Bangor Office where a Drop-In Centre is open Mon-Fri for social interaction and tea/coffee. The centre is open for use by members under the guidance of the full time Senior Staff Officer, Mitch Bresland
