The role of the Commissioner is to act as an independent champion for children and young people, advocating their interests and making sure their voices are heard.

We expect local authorities to take the lead in driving forward partnership working that puts in place effective integrated services for all children and young people.

Our vision

We set out our vision for children and young people in 'Children and Young People: Rights to Action' and 'Extending Entitlement: supporting young people'.

Joint working

Considerable energy and commitment have been devoted by local partners to establishing joint working across Wales. The Children and Young People's Plans (CYPPs) carry forward this approach.

The CYPP has to be the defining statement of strategic planning and priorities for all children and young people's services in the area.
