Scroll down to find out how you can join the NICCY Youth Panel.
The Northern Ireland Commissioner for Children and Young People (NICCY) regularly recruits young people to join the NICCY Youth Panel (NYP). The purpose of the NYP is to advise the Commissioner in her day-to-day work of promoting and safeguarding children’s rights in Northern Ireland. It is made up of young people from across Northern Ireland, who share their experiences and thoughts with the Commissioner and her staff to help NICCY make decisions about issues that affect children and young people.

We recruit young people aged between 12-17 years, or up to 18 if you have a disability or have experienced living in care. Applications are currently closed for new members but we will update this page when these open again.
