Petition: Support the Children's Bill

We have started a campaign in support of Steven Agnew's Private Member's Children's Bill. The Bill seeks to place a Statutory Duty to Cooperate on Government to work together to deliver children's services.

A Day of Reflection

CiNI are working in collaboration with Healing Through Remembering to promote the Day of Reflection - an inclusive and positive event held on the 21 June each year that emphasises a commitment to a peaceful new society.

What is the Day of Reflection?

CiNI have expressed our concern at the announcement by the NI Executive that legislation being brought forward to protect against age discrimination in accessing goods, facilities and services will exclude children and young people under the age of 16.
