is the children's commissioner for England.
Commissioner and her team make sure adults who work with children think
about the needs of children and young people and listen to their views
to make their lives better.
They speak up for all children and young people, especially those who
are not often asked for their views or who might be vulnerable. For
example, children who miss out on education, disabled children, those
who have just arrived in this country, young people with emotional
difficulties and those who get in trouble with the law.
The Commissioner's job was created in 2004 by the Children Act. The
Children Act is a law created by the Government to keep children safe
from harm. The Commissioner uses the United Nations Convention on the
Rights of the Child (UNCRC) to guide her work.
