Children's Commissioner's Takeover Day 2013
Friday 22 November 2013
What is Children's Commissioner's Takeover Day?
The day gives children and young people the chance to work with adults for the day and be involved in decision-making. Children benefit from the opportunity to experience the world of work and make their voices heard, while adults and organisations gain a fresh perspective on what they do.
We hope this will help break down barriers between generations and encourage children's active involvement in their communities.
Who can be part of it?
Organisations across every sector can be part of Children's Commissioner's Takeover Day, and we receive extremely positive feedback from those that do. It's a flexible event which can be tailored to suit your organisation, and we provide guidance, resources and support to help you get the most out of the day.
Some organisations could not take part on the day in 2012 and held it on a different day. The important thing is joining in and giving opportunities to children and young people.
