What is the review about?
In December 2018 the Care of Children in Jersey Review Panel published its report S.R.17/2018 Response to the Care Inquiry: Update Quarter Four 2018. In this report the Review Panel focussed on the progress that had been made to implement the response to recommendations one to four of the Independent Jersey Care Inquiry (IJCI) as set out in P.108/2017. The report also focussed on other issues that had arisen as a result of the IJCI recommendations including the pledge and plan for children and young people and funding concerns for 2019.
The Review Panel agreed that it would seek to publish six monthly reports in order to provide an update on the progress that had been made implementing the recommendations and also review that progress.
The focus of this report will therefore be on the actions that have been undertaken to implement recommendations five (Legislation), six, (Corporate Parenting), seven (The Jersey Way) and eight (Legacy Issues)
The Review Panel has launched its review and is currently gathering evidence from key stakeholders and the general public.
The Review Panel is interested to hear views on the implementation of these recommendations so far. Get in touch by Friday 16th August by emailing
Whilst the Panel will normally publish any submissions it receives, it will not publish any submissions that are provided in confidence or contain sensitive information. The Panel also reserves the right not to publish any information it receives.
