Children's Commissioner Speaks Out

21 MAR 2007

On 16 May 2007 the Children's Commissioner for England, Sir Al Aynsley-Green, launched a five year plan to focus on key issues to improve the lives of England's 11 million children and young people. The strategy, developed in partnership with children and young people, identifies six fundamental areas of concern regarding children's rights and wellbeing.

  • Youth justice and anti-social behaviour
  • Asylum and trafficking
  • A fair life
  • Mental health
  • Enjoying education and leisure
  • Staying safe

At the launch, at HM Treasury, the Commissioner said that England was one of the worst countries in the developed world in which to be a child and warned of a 'crisis at the heart of our society' in the way children were treated by adults. For the full news item see July [2007] Fam Law.
