Children’s Commissioner to review future of childhood post-coronavirus

Date:19 MAR 2021
Third slide
The Children’s Commissioner has announced the launch of the Childhood Commission, a review of the future of childhood by the Children’s Commissioner’s Office. The Childhood Commission will identify the barriers preventing children from reaching their full potential, propose policy and services solutions and develop targets by which the government and local agencies can be held to account for progress. It will not focus solely on the problems that have been highlighted and amplified by the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic but will also address ‘the policy shortfalls that have held back the lives of many children for decades’.

The Children’s Commissioner is also set to launch ‘The Big Ask’, ‘the largest consultation ever held with children in England’ with the aim of understanding how the pandemic has changed children’s’ lives for better or worse, what their aspirations are and the barriers to reaching them, how things are at home, how their communities and local environment could be improved, and how they feel about the future and the challenges facing the world. The responses received from children will be used to help shape the way the Children’s Commissioner’s Office delivers better outcomes for children now and in the future.
