The Children's Commissioner for England

Anne Longfield is the Children's Commissioner for England as of 1 March 2015.

She has a legal duty to promote and protect the rights of all children in England with a particular focus on children and young people with difficulties or challenges in their lives, and in particular those living away from home, in or leaving care, or receiving social care services.

Her work focuses on making sure that adults in charge, or making decisions, listen to what children and young people say about things that affect them. She encourages adults, including the people making decisions about children's lives, always to take their rights, views and interests into account.

Anne brings matters that affect children and young people's rights to the attention of Parliament, local government and others.

Anne is supported in all of her work by a small but expert team of staff at the Office of the Children's Commissioner (OCC). All of the OCCs work supports her role as Commissioner.
