About the Children's Law Centre

The Children's Law Centre was established in September 1997.

It is founded upon the principles laid down in the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child.

The Centre works to protect the rights of all children living in NI particularly those who are the most disadvantaged, e.g. children with disabilities, special educational needs, mental ill health, homeless young people.

  • We use the law to access critical services for children and young people and to challenge the discrimination and disadvantage suffered by many of our most vulnerable children.
  • We provide a free legal advice service and legal representation for children and young people.
  • We also work to create a society where all children can access all necessary services and opportunities they need to enjoy their childhood and realise their full potential.
  • We are committed to giving a voice to the most disadvantaged and voiceless children.
