Advocacy

NYCI advocates on issues which impact on young people, on our member organisations and on the youth work sector.

We also use the collective experience of our member organisations to advocate on and seek to influence policy which impacts on the lives of young people.

Our policy and advocacy priorities are guided by our 2018-2022 Strategic Plan.
