Participation Hub

What is Hub na nÓg?

  • A national centre of excellence and coordination
  • It supports Government Departments, State agencies and non-government organisations to give children and young people a voice in decision-making on issues that affect their lives, with a particular focus on those that are seldom-heard.

Why was it set up?

In the first National Strategy on Children and Young People's Participation in Decision Making (2015-2020), the DCYA committed to the establishment of a national Hub to support implementation of the Strategy.
