Cuts 'could hit vulnerable children' - Children In Wales

Services to protect vulnerable children could be lost due to a lack of vision and leadership by the Welsh government, claimed the children's commissioner.

Publishing his final annual report in the role, Keith Towler urged ministers to protect children's rights and shield services from funding cutbacks.

He called on the Welsh government to "re-state its vision for children".

The Welsh government said supporting children and protecting their rights was at its "very heart".

Catriona Williams, chief executive of Children in Wales and the Welsh representative on the UK Government's child poverty and social mobility committee, said the most vulnerable children should be a priority.
