About CommunityNI

What is CommunityNI?

CommunityNI is a website for promoting the work and sharing the information of the voluntary and community sector, as well as for those who have products or services to offer the sector.  The site allows users to create content and contribute articles on behalf of their organisation or as individuals. Any content that a registered user contributes to the site is saved on their Dashboard.

CommunityNI is developed and managed by NICVA as a service to the voluntary and community sector.

CommunityNI users can:

  • Contribute: Contribute news articles and features
  • Advertise: Publish free job adverts and promote events, opportunities or products or services
  • Campaign: Submit a campaign to our team for promotion.

Sign up and Login

Why should I sign up?
If you want to use any of the publishing tools you will need to sign up for an account and create your profile.  It's free!

How do I sign up?
Look for the sign up links and fill in the short form.  You'll need an email address and we would prefer if you would use your real name as a username.

What happens if I forget my password to login?
Use the "Forgot your password?" link and type in your username or the email address you registered with. A temporary password will be emailed to you to allow you to access the site and change your password. If you've forgotten your username, or the email address that you created your account with, send us an email at [email protected] and we'll help you. Alternatively, you can call us on 028 9087 7777.


What is the Dashboard?

Your CommunityNI Dashboard is where your profile and account information is saved and can be edited. From here, you can also add content and access a list of all your previously published content.

How do I edit my profile?

If you missed filling out your profile properly during the initial registration process, you can go back and edit it at any time. Just go to your Dashboard and click on "Edit Profile."   

How can I display my organisation's logo?

Everytime you add content, such as a job advert or event details, you select to use your organisation. The logo that we have for that organisation will display automatically. If you're organisation isn't available in the dropdown list, then you can add it by clicking on the 'create new organisation' link. If you're not able to add your organisation or if your organisation logo has been changed, please contact us to let us know.
