Freedom of information policy

The Freedom of Information Act 2000 (FOIA) imposes a number of obligations on the Children’s Commissioner and provides the public with a general right of access to information held by the Children’s Commissioner’s Office subject to certain exemptions.

Since 1st June 2006 members of the public have the statutory right to request all information held by the Children’s Commissioner’s Office, regardless of when it was created, by whom, or the form in which it is now recorded. Again, this is subject to certain exemptions outlined in the FOIA, as well as the Acts of Parliament and Statutory Instruments relating to the Children’s Commissioner, in particular, The Children’s Act 2004 and Children and Families Act 2014.
