Children’s voices

The Children’s Commissioner is the eyes and ears of children in England. Talking to children to understand their lives is at the heart of what we do. On this page you’ll find a selection of our conversations that shine a light on the experiences of children in England today.

Lockdown experiences

We are speaking with children to find out how the national lockdown is affecting them. How do they feel being locked up at home for weeks on end, away from friends? What do they miss most? Is there anything about the lockdown they like?

Voices of children reports

Talking with children is at the heart of our work and we have published a range of studies shining a light on the experiences of children.

Children in care

IMO (‘In My Opinion’) has been created in collaboration with care experienced young people to provide a voice for young people in care and care leavers to share advice, experience, and stories with one another.

The site has young people’s voices at its heart, and all of its content, including blogs, vlogs and podcasts, has been created by or developed with input from young people in care, for young people in care.
