The Children and Young People's Commissioner in Scotland is Bruce Adamson.

The Commissioner's job is to help children and young people understand their rights and to make sure those rights are respected. His goal is to make sure all children and young people in Scotland are as safe and happy as possible.

Bruce works towards this goal by:

  • listening to children and young people,
  • asking people in power – like Members of the Scottish Parliament – to think about how new laws might affect children and young people,
  • helping children and young people learn more about their rights, and
  • speaking out if children and young people are not getting a fair deal.
