What is the Child Policy Information Service?

The Child Policy Information Service (CPIS) provides weekly and fortnightly briefings on policy and legislation impacting upon the lives of children and young people.

The service provides a weekly Political Update which compiles the latest news from the Northern Ireland Assembly and Executive, informs on live consultations and Committee meetings, summarises press releases from all political parties in Northern Ireland and includes key questions and answers and Early Day Motions from Westminster.

It also provides a fortnightly e-Brief which includes news, research and statistics, consultation responses, upcoming events and a political review section.

"The content contained in the CPIS briefings is excellent, up to date and very relevant to my work. The layout is very clear and modern and easy to access. Having sections that include analysis on current reports, policy responses, research, statistics and also a political review, is extremely useful. I would like to thank CiNI for a great resource that I will use within my role, and plan to use as a tool to support the learning of the young people within the NEET Youth Forum" - Lorraine Boyd - Regional Project Manager (NEET) - Bryson Charitable Group

"The service provides an excellent political update about business at Stormont, Westminster and Europe. It is a very useful resource for colleagues and serves as an important reference tool which does all the hard work. Congratulations to CINI for such a vital intelligence service" - Anne Moore - Policy and Assembly Coordinator with Save the Children
