Children in Northern Ireland (CiNI) is the regional umbrella organisation for the children's sector in Northern Ireland. CiNI derives its authority for its role from our members and our sponsor.
CiNI provides a range of services from training, to policy and room hire. Find out more about what we do here.
Our mission is to put children at the centre of policy making
In terms of conference and room hire facilities CiNI is a hidden gem.
CiNI represents the interests of the children's sector and provides support services to member organisations in their work with children and young people.
The Child Poverty Alliance (CPA) is currently chaired by CiNI. The CPA came into being in 2008 as a loose alliance of organisations to raise awareness of child poverty and to campaign to end child poverty within Northern Ireland.
We are an inclusive coalition committed to campaigning for and addressing child poverty by working collaboratively with an evidence-based approach.
The CPA has been constructive, pragmatic and solution focused based on the evidence of what will work. We have engaged directly with Government and elected representatives seeking to inform public policy and hold Government accountable for tackling child poverty. We continue to advocate publicly on behalf of families and children living in poverty so that policy makers will be more informed of the possible impact of their actions on children living in poverty.
