Takeover Day: Day of support
We'll be dedicating Monday 22 September to answering any and all questions and giving top quality Takeover Day advice. You can get in touch however you like! Send in questions and queries via phone, email or Twitter and we'll make sure all your questions are answered.
We'll also be hosting a Google Hangout, where we'll answer your questions, so join us and join in the discussion. We'll send out the link closer to the date (so you don't lose it).
It will be a great opportunity to voice ideas, and we are especially hopeful that young people will be available to contribute to the discussion, in keeping with the principles of Takeover Day.

This year we're launching a new scheme that we'd like you to be part of: The Takeover Day Ambassadors.
Ambassadors will help us recruit new organisations to be taken over and in return will receive the opportunity to take over high profile organisations and have their Children's Commissioner's Takeover Day stories featured on our website, in our press releases and media coverage.
What happened last year?
Tesco's Chief Executive, Philip Clarke; Children's Minister, Edward Timpson; NHS England's Chief Executive, Sir David Nicholson; Chief Nursing Officer of England, Jane Cummings; Shadow Chancellor, Ed Balls and Assistant Metropolitan Police Chief, Simon Byrne were just a few of the people and organisations who were taken over by thousands of children across England for Children's Commissioner's Takeover Day on Friday 22 November 2013.
