Official Website - Commissioner for Children, Malta

The Commissioner for Children is proud to launch the official website, which aims to grant further accessibility to children and adults alike in communicating with the Office of the Commissioner for Children. Given that the Office of the Commissioner for Children at times confronts certain limitations in terms of its accessibility to all children and young people in Malta and Gozo, the official website will serve as an important tool in working towards this aim.

The official website was designed in order to be engaging and appealing to children of all ages, facilitating their communication with the Commissioner for Children. Various consultations were held in various schools in order to ensure that the website would be attractive and appealing to diverse age groups. Feedback was elicited from children and young people on the content and design of the website. In total, 7 schools were visited around Malta and Gozo, and 248 children and young people between the ages of 4 and 15 were consulted. The children gave very useful suggestions on how the website could be improved, and following an analysis of the consultations with children, a number of modifications were implemented in order for the end product to better reflect the wishes and opinions of the children and young people. The website is divided into sections for children aged 3-5, 6-9, 10-13, and 14-17.

The website also incorporates a section for an older audience (18+), in providing information on resources and legislation for researchers, academics, and those interested in the field of children’s rights. The website is available in both English and Maltese.
