Our work in relation to the Children’s Commissioner

The Children’s Commissioner is an important organisation which works to promote and protect children’s rights.

A review carried out by Dr John Dunford recommended that its remit, powers and independence should be strengthened to make it more effective. The Children and Families Bill, which is currently before Parliament, would make many of the changes recommended by the Dunford Review. CRAE coordinates the Alliance for Reform of the Children’s Commissioner, which is lobbying for the Bill to be improved. You can read about the Alliance’s priorities here.
