The Children’s Commissioner for England is Anne Longfield OBE. She speaks up for children and young people so that policymakers and the people who have an impact on their lives take their views and interests into account when making decisions about them. Independent of Government and Parliament, the Children’s Commissioner has unique powers to help bring about long-term change and improvements for all children, particularly the most vulnerable. These include the power to request data from any public body and the power to enter any institution where children are living.
The Office of the Children’s Commissioner for England is a dynamic and creative place to work. We are a small organisation, but we have a loud voice and we are highly respected. We are passionate about driving the changes needed to improve the lives of children growing up in England.
As a member of our team you will work with us to expose how the system works for children, particularly the most vulnerable, and help us to take this message to Government, Parliament, the media and the public.
