Introducing Maggie Atkinson...

The Children's Commissioner for England

The Children's Commissioner for England, Maggie Atkinson, makes sure that adults in charge listen to your views, so tell us what you think by answering a question in the 'Have your say' area. You can upload audio or video files, powerpoints, make a shape, or simply put your views into words.

Adults can find out more about our work by visiting the 'Media Centre' or 'About us' pages.

The Children's Commissioner for England is Maggie Atkinson. The Commissioner and her team make sure adults who work with children think about the needs of children and young people and listen to their views to make their lives better.

They speak up for all children and young people, especially those who are not often asked for their views or who might be vulnerable. For example, children who miss out on education, disabled children, those who have just arrived in this country, young people with emotional difficulties and those who get in trouble with the law.

The Commissioner's job was created in 2004 by the Children Act. The Children Act is a law created by the Government to keep children safe from harm. The Commissioner uses the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) to guide her work.
