Children's Society press release
The Children's Society's Campaign for Childhood Director Elaine Hindal said:
"By strengthening the role of the Children's Commissioner the government has taken a positive step towards having children's voices heard at the highest levels of power. Making sure children have a truly independent advocate who will further promote and protect children's rights.
"But the government must seize this opportunity and make sure this move is backed up by sufficient resources if this is to make a real impact.
"While we welcome the news that the government is reviewing support for some children with special education needs,it is vital that an accessible, flexible and supportive system is made available to all children who need additional help."
