Northern Ireland Council for Voluntary Action (NICVA)
NICVA, the Northern Ireland Council for Voluntary Action, is a membership and representative umbrella body for the voluntary and community sector in Northern Ireland. Our membership reflects the make up of the sector in terms of both thematic (issue based) and geographical representation. We offer a range of services including advice (governance and charity advice, HR), fundraising, research, policy and lobbying, training and consultancy.
Youthnet evolved from the Standing Conference of Youth Organisations, which had its roots in the voluntary sector and can be traced back to the 1940s. Following a period of continuous development Youthnet was established as a registered charity and company limited by guarantee in 1991. Youthnet membership covers a wide range of organisations working with children and young people, from long-established organisations through to newly emerged organisations. Member organisations work with a diverse range of young people and vary in size, structure and capacity.
Our vision is of a society where equality and diversity are respected, valued and embraced, a society free from all forms of racism, sectarianism, discrimination and social exclusion; where human rights are guaranteed. NICEM works in partnership, to bring about social change through partnership and alliance building, and to achieve equality of outcome and full participation in society.

PICUM – the Platform for International Cooperation on Undocumented Migrants
PICUM – Is a non-governmental organisation (NGO) that aims to promote respect for the human rights of undocumented migrants within Europe. PICUM provides a direct link between the grassroots level, where undocumented migrants’ experience is most visible, and the European level, where policies relating to them are deliberated. PICUM reports on issues regarding undocumented migrants through its members’ experiences and simultaneously monitors developments within the European institutions. This approach mainstreams undocumented migrants’ concerns into key policy debates, ensures PICUM’s network is well informed of the EU agenda and develops their capacity to engage in the realisation of just and fair strategies for undocumented migrants.
