Ambitions for Wales

Between May and November 2022, we’ll be asking thousands of children and young people about their ambitions for Wales – the things they want to change to make Wales a better place for children to grow up.

Their views and experiences will shape our work over the next three years.

New Children’s Commissioner

Rocio Cifuentes is the new Children’s Commissioner for Wales.

It’s her job to fight for positive changes for children and young people. She does this by making sure that the Welsh Government and others do all that they can to help children grow up happy, healthy, and safe.

She wants everything she says and does as Children’s Commissioner to be guided by children and young people’s views and experiences.

How we’ll listen

We’ll meet in-person with children and young people from across Wales over the coming months to start shaping our work. Our team will also meet with their parents, and the professionals who work with and for them.

We’ll also use these views to write a national survey to hear from thousands of children and adults.

We aim to publish this survey in the autumn.

How we’ll respond

We aim to finish all of our face-to-face sessions, and our national survey, by November.

After this, we’ll analyse all of the views and experiences that children and adults have shared with us.

We’ll then publish our Ambitions for Wales, and how we plan to achieve them. They’ll be based on the views of children, the adults who care for them, and the professionals who work with and for them.
