The Government and ‘relevant authorities’ provide services for children and young people such as health, education and justice. 

The Commissioner’s job is to check they do this in a way that is in the best interests of children and young people.

She does this by:

  • Monitoring delivery – The Commissioner monitors what government does for children and young people, to challenge them to deliver what children need
  • Advising government– The Commissioner advises government on the policies, legislation (laws) and services it provides, for children and young people.
  • Holding government to account– when the Commissioner believes not enough is being done for children and young people, she asks them to do better and to tell her what they did.
