We unite our members to work together and make Ireland one of the best places in the world to be a child.

The Children’s Rights Alliance unites not for profit organisations and individuals who are working together to improve the lives of all children in Ireland. We look to our members for their knowledge and expertise, as they are often front-facing service providers who see where the gaps are. Their input is central to our unique role in advocating for children and young people.


Why become a Member?

The Children’s Rights Alliance is defined by the relationships between its members. Our strength comes from the size and diversity of our member organisations nationwide. By standing together with our members, we have the power to make a real impact for all children in Ireland. We provide a forum for Inclusivity, Collaboration, Participation, Transparency, and Integrity. Being a Children’s Rights Alliance member means being connected to a community of like-minded organisations and individuals, from all over Ireland, to affect real change for children and young people.

It wouldn't be possible to do what we do without our amazing members, who actively participate and shape our work through:

  • Connecting with senior decision makers in constructive dialogues raising issues that are important to children and young people.
  • Being a part of a growing national movement representing children’s rights.
  • Participating in valuable networking opportunities with other member organisations.
  • Uniting collective voices to work together to make Ireland one of the best places in the world to be a child and put pressure on Government to put children first.
