This article reports the results of an evaluation of the Children’s Commissioner for Wales, which was planned and conducted with the active participation of children and young people. This article begins by giving the background to the evaluation and explaining the methods used. The findings are reported in relation to five key questions: (i) how well the Commissioner’s office engages with
children and young people; (ii) how much children and young people know about the Commissioner; (iii) what impact the Commissioner is having on policy and services for children and young people in Wales; (iv) how effective is the individual advice and support service; (v) whether the Commissioner has lived up to expectations. The article concludes with recommendations for the future development
of the Commissioner’s Office.
