The Northern Ireland Youth Forum (NIYF) is run by young people and is all about young people. Any young person aged 11-25 can get involved.
We were set 30 years ago to represent the views of young people in Northern Ireland to government and other decision makers.
We believe that ALL young people have ideas and opinions worth listening to and we want to help you get involved in changing things in your school, community, home and in government.

We were set up following a government circular.
Our core business is to promote the voice of young people and to promote their involvement in the decision making process
Continue to lobby and advocate for the rights of young people. Ensure that government adheres to UNCRC and other legislation. Continue to work at community; sub regional; regional; national and international levels.
