The Children’s Rights Alliance is a coalition of over 100 organisations working to secure the rights of children in Ireland, by campaigning for the full implementation of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. We aim to improve the lives of all children under 18 years, through securing the necessary changes in Ireland’s laws, policies and services.
Our Vision: Ireland will be one of the best places in the world to be a child
Our Mission: To realise the rights of children in Ireland through securing the full implementation of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child
The Alliance was formally established in March 1995. Many of its member organisations are prominent in the children's sector - working directly with children on a daily basis across the country. The Alliance's policies, projects and activities are developed through ongoing collaboration and consultation with its member organisations. A full list of member organisations is available here.
