Accessible resources

A group of primary school children doing a taskThese resources support all children and young people to take part in our Ambassadors scheme and learn about their rights and the Commissioner.

Ambassadors for All

Every child and young person under 18 has rights and should learn about their rights.

  • All young people in Wales benefit from knowing they have a Commissioner who can stand up for them.
  • The Ambassador scheme is an opportunity to offer peer-leadership roles to children of all abilities.
  • It is up to your school how many Ambassadors you have, we recommend at least two but many schools will elect a larger group.
  • Our events are open to all children and young people and we will work with you to differentiate activities.
