Did you know? The person responsible for protecting and standing up for children and young people in Wales has changed. That's a big deal.

This person is called the Children's Commissioner for Wales. Recently, a lady called Sally Holland took over the job from a man called Keith Towler [find out what Keith Towler had to say to theSprout by clicking on the links at the bottom].

What's the opportunity? You now have the chance to directly affect what work she will be doing over the next three years in her three-year plan!

For her to best stand up for and protect children and young people in Wales, she needs to hear from as many of you as possible - and from anyone who works with children and young people in Wales.

  • Think something should be improved in Wales? Have your say!
  • Believe "Children's Commissioner" should be called something else? Tell her!
  • Don't like going to school or think your local area is boring? Speak up!

There are no right or wrong answers - just your opinions. Share them by clicking the links below - and influence what goes on in Wales right at the top level.

It's your shout, that's why we're posting it on your Sprout. 

The survey, which is different for different age ranges, can be found here
