Who We Are

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.

  • Members - CiNI is accountable for representing and giving voice to the experiences, views and aspirations of its members across Northern Ireland to inform and influence those who make policy or plan and deliver services for children and young people.
  • Sponsor -  the Department of Health, Social Services and Public Safety funds CiNI to strategically represent the children's sector in Northern Ireland and translate its views into policy recommendations; to act as a consultative point of reference; and apply good governance to all aspects of its organisation and operation.
