Hub na nÓg

Hub na nÓg – young voices in decision-making, is 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. 

Hub na nÓg was established up by the Department of Children and Youth Affairs as a key commitment in the first National Strategy on Children and Young People’s Participation in Decision Making (2015-2020) to support implementation of the Strategy.
