The Fostering Network in Wales is calling on children, young people and foster carers to complete a Welsh Government survey looking at the role of children’s commissioner for Wales.
The survey will form part of a larger review of the role which will focus on the role and functions of a children's commissioner for Wales, the impact that the role has had, the suitability and effectiveness of the underpinning legislation, accountability and governance, and accessibility.
Freda Lewis, director of the Fostering Network in Wales, said: “Wales was the first country in the UK to have a children’s commissioner, and it is a role that we hope will continue to evolve to keep on serving our children and young people, and particularly those in care.
“By filling in this survey, you’re having your say on the future of what is provided for children and young people in our country. This is an opportunity that should not be missed.”
Once responses are collated, a report will be provided to the Welsh Government towards the end of 2014 with recommendations on the future of the role.
You can complete the survey here.
