Independent Jersey Care Inquiry
The Independent Jersey Care Inquiry is investigating the abuse of children in Jersey's care system over many years.
The Panel hearing the evidence wants to build up as full a picture as possible so that it can then make recommendations, ensuring that the Island's care system is fit for its purpose of caring for vulnerable children and young people.
The Inquiry Chair, Frances Oldham QC, has promised a "robust and fearless" examination of what went wrong and to find answers for people who suffered abuse as children.
The hearings are being held in public at 11 -15 Seaton Place in St Helier.
Where agreed in advance, some witnesses will be giving their evidence in private. Arrangements are in place to guarantee their confidentiality.
Transcripts of the hearings will be placed on the website.
Meanwhile, anyone with information about the care system in Jersey, or direct experience of it, is invited to get in touch with the Inquiry.
