A chance to amplify the voices of children in England and to champion their solutions in front of changemakers and policymakers!

The Children’s Commissioner for England is Dame Rachel de Souza, her role is a statutory position created by the Children Act 2004. The purpose of her role is to promote and protect children’s rights in accordance with the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child.

The Children’s Commissioner is launching a big project to hear directly from children and young people across England about what they think, what they want to see and the solutions they want for themselves and the next generation.

The project aims to increase the priority given to children at the most senior levels of decision making in this country, to ensure children and young people’s choices and voices are reflected in the decisions that will affect them in years to come.

That’s where you come in.

The Children’s Commissioner is excited to launch her Ambassadors Programme, a voluntary opportunity for young people aged 16 and 17 to champion solutions and amplify the voices of children in England.

The Programme will last one year, with the option to extend. It will give you the chance to get in front of changemakers and policymakers, and to champion solutions alongside the Children’s Commissioner for England.

As part of the Ambassadors Programme you will:

Accompany the Children’s Commissioner and team to meet policymakers and Government at the heart of Whitehall. There will be a chance to make the case for issues you are passionate about.

Share your thoughts on our work and topics and ideas for us to take forwards. You will give us important feedback on things we do for children and young people and making sure our work is relevant and useful for children across England.

Represent children and young people’s voices at events and meet key stakeholders. The office will include you in key moments to support your development.
