The NIYF is a youth led organisation that lobbies, advocates, promotes and fights for the rights of young people. We believe that young people have an important role to play.

The Youth Forum exists to support young people to affect positive change for themselves and for their communities; we believe young people sound be invested in; can be part of the solution; want to be empowered and must be listened to.

We believe that one person can make a difference; and that together we can achieve great things.
