The Office of the Children's Commissioner, with the support of their Young Expert Group, are running a survey for children in care and care leavers.

Fill in our evaluation form and get a tailored report
For this year's day we have developed a new tool to give you a personalised evaluation report of your take over. Just get everyone to fill out this form. It just takes a few minutes and can be done on computers, tablets or smartphones.
We'll send you a customised report with all the responses from your organisation and advice on how to continue and deepen your work with young people. This report can be presented to your board, funders, colleagues and other stakeholders to show how you are involving young people and the outcomes of your Children's Commissioner's Takeover Day 2014.
What happened in 2014?
Children across England took over adults' jobs on Children's Commissioner's Takeover Day on Friday 21st November 2014. This year they included a wide variety of roles such as Ministers, MPs, teachers, councillors, museum curators and even TV reporters! Education Secretary, Nicky Morgan; Shadow Health Secretary, Andy Burnham; Metropolitan Police Commissioner, Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe; Julie Bentley, CE of Girl Guiding UK; the Mayor of Sunderland; the Cabinet Office and NHS England are just some of those who decided to take part.
We even trended on Twitter for most of the day with millions finding out about the day.
Do not worry if you could not take part on 21st November many take overs are still taking place. So there's nothing to stop you!
