What is the Children’s Commissioner’s Takeover Challenge?
Takeover is a fun, hugely successful and exciting engagement project which sees organisations across England opening their doors to children and young people to take over adult roles.
It puts children and young people in decision-making positions and encourages organisations and businesses to hear their views. Children gain an insight into the adult world and organisations benefit from a fresh perspective about their work.

This year Oldham Youth Council took over several departments of Oldham Council
Once again Oldham’s Youth Voice Family is taking part in Takeover Challenge and the first day of the challenge saw many departments taken over by young people.
Youth Councillors also held a Question Time event, grilling the Council’s Cabinet members about issues young people feel strongly about.
Finally our two members of Oldham’s CICC even took over CBBC.
