(More about Adele below)
The Children’s Commissioner for England is Anne Longfield OBE.
She has a statutory duty to promote and protect the rights of all children in England in accordance with the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child.
The Children and Families Act 2014 gives her special responsibility for the rights of children who are in or leaving care, living away from home or receiving social care services.
She speaks for wider groups of children on non-devolved issues including immigration (for the whole of the UK) and youth justice (for England and Wales).
It is her job to make life better for all children and young people by making sure their rights are respected and realised and that their views are taken seriously.
The Commissioner is supported in her work by a team of staff. Together, they are responsible for the rights of all children and young people until they are 18 years old, or 25 years if they have been in care, are care leavers or have a disability.
Adele Gladman is an established independent safeguarding children trainer and consultant. Originally a solicitor, Adele became involved in practice development and training after working on a Home Office research and development pilot working with young women suspected to be involved in sexual exploitation.
Adele works on a UK wide basis and has worked with the police, social care, education, the youth service, legal services, early years’ sector, health, probation, the voluntary sector, and two national ombudsmen. Adele’s consultancy work has involved her in developing policies and procedures; assisting legal services; independent investigations, reviews, audits and inspections; and helping organisations to attain best practice standards in safeguarding children issues. Her current work includes working with the Children’s Commissioner regarding the piloting of a new criminal justice model for child victims of abuse.
Adele is the co-author of the forthcoming publication Learning from Rotherham- Best Practice in Responding to Issues of Child Sexual Exploitation
