Background to the Youth Panel

The NICCY Youth Panel (NYP) is there to help inform/work with the Commissioner in a wide range of areas. 

The Youth Panel is made up of young people who share their experiences and thoughts with the Commissioner and their staff, and help NICCY make decisions about issues that affect children and young people.

There are 56 members of the panel representing different religions, different abilities and disabilities, and of different ethnic groups.

The members are also spread geographically throughout Northern Ireland.
