Defence for Children International
Defense for Children is an internationally operating organization that defends the rights of children. Effective reinforcement of children's rights can only be realized if the rights of children are laid down in legislation and regulations and there is continuous monitoring of compliance with them. Defense for Children uses the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child and all related jurisprudence and other international treaties as a starting point for implementing children's rights and monitoring compliance.

The No Child in the Cell Coalition was founded in 2006 and consists of Amnesty International, Vluchtelingenwerk Nederland, LOS Foundation, INLIA, UNICEF Netherlands, Kerk in Actie, Stichting Kinderpostzegels Nederland and Defense for Children. The Coalition No Child in the Unit argues for a legal ban on the use of detention for foreigners in children.
Dutch Council for Refugees
The Dutch Refugee Council is an independent, broadly composed professional organization that, based on the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and with many volunteers, works to protect asylum seekers and refugees through personal support and advocacy in their admission, reception and social participation, primarily in the Netherlands.
