Anne Longfield OBE has been appointed as the new Children’s Commissioner for England.
Ms Longfield, chief executive of 4Children – a national charity which works to support children, young people and families – will take up her post on 1 March 2015.
Her 30 years’ experience in developing, influencing and shaping the agenda for children and families across Parliament and government have made her the outstanding candidate to oversee the Office of the Children’s Commission for the next 6 years.
Cheryll Adams, Director of the Institute of Health Visiting (iHV) said: “Anne Longfield was one of our very early supporters. She has superb strategic vision and massive experience of the children’s and, particularly, the early years’ sectors so her appointment is an excellent one. The iHV will look forward to working with her in this important role.”
