Children's Commissioner at 18

By Children and Young People's Commissioner Scotland
The office of Children and Young People’s Commissioner for Scotland office turns 18 on 26 April 2022. We’ve championed children’s human rights for the length of an entire childhood!

The first Commissioner, from April 2004, was Professor Kathleen Marshall. Tam Baillie held the post from 2009, and was followed by Bruce Adamson in 2017.

In this series, guided by questions from children and young people, all three Children's Commissioners discuss their work, the progress of children's rights in Scotland, and the important changes they would still like to see.

The podcast was co-produced by one of the office’s young advisers with Bespoken Media, and music was created by young people working with Big Noise, Sistema Scotland.
