Children’s Commissioner for Wales (2015-2022)
The Neath Port Talbot Children’s Rights Unit continues to lead the way for children’s rights promotion, and have been a catalyst for children’s rights work in other areas of Wales. For example, their involvement in the setting up of the UK’s first health authority youth advisory panel has led to most health boards in Wales now having a youth board, and the development of a children’s rights charter has been replicated across health boards and by other organisations such as South Wales Police. This Annual Report showcases the brilliant work of the unit within the Neath Port Talbot and Swansea Bay areas, and it is testament to this dedication of children’s human rights that others across Wales are following their example.
