What does the Children's Commissioner do

The Children's Commissioner in Wales works for children and young people in Wales under 18, or 25 years old if they have been in care.

The Commissioner's work includes:

  • telling everyone, including children and young people, about the Commissioner and about children’s rights

  • meeting with children and young people and listening to what they have to say about issues that affect them

  • talking to children and young people about the Commissioner’s work, what else they think he should do and how he should do it

  • looking at the work of organisations like councils and health trusts to see if they are thinking about children’s rights

  • telling people who can make a difference what children and young people think is important, and how to improve things

  • giving advice and information to children and adults who contact the Commissioner's team.
