As Wales’ independent commissioners for Children and for Future Generations we have distinct roles but common interests. We want to enable public bodies to put children’s rights to be safe, healthy and to flourish here and now at the centre of their planning and delivery. We also want to ensure that they plan for the long-term – for the rest of the lives of children living in their communities now, and for future generations still unborn.

Children’s Rights Approach – Reviewing For The Long Term

Return to the measures of progress and trends you initially identified as relevant to children.

  • What were the key messages emerging from the baseline data relevant to children? What were the future trends?
  • What does the current data tell you about how the situation for children has or has not changed in taking steps to meet the well-being objectives/over the course of the project? Does it correlate with the future trends identified at the beginning?
  • What were the outputs of the well-being objective/project?
  • How have your well-being objectives/project contributed to securing the rights and long-term well-being of children?
  • Where the situation has not changed, what were the obstacles and changes might be needed to overcome these in the future? You might want to consider the scope and allocation of financial, human and technical resources dedicated to children.
  • How well were children involved in the development of the well-being objectives/project? How well were their views taken into account? What changed as a result?
  • What are children saying now about how their well-being might or might not have changed?
