The Childhood Commission

The Children’s Commissioner for England has launched a review of the future of childhood in England. The Childhood Commission aims to identify the barriers preventing children from reaching their full potential and propose policy and services solutions and develop targets by which improvements can be monitored. The Big Ask consultation, taking place after the Easter break, will ask children: how the coronavirus pandemic changed their lives; 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.
