Independent Jersey Care Inquiry
The Independent Jersey Care Inquiry is investigating the abuse of children in Jersey's care system over many years.
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 chidren. Three phases of hearings were held in public in St Helier between July 2014 and March 2016.
The Panel has sought to gain an understanding of the past so that it can make recommendations to ensure Jersey's care services are fit for the purpose of caring for vulnerable children and young people.
The current phase of the Inquiry is hearing submissions from Counsel and from Interested Parties based on evidence heard so far. This began in the week of May 16, 2016, and will resume on Monday June 20, 2016.
The venue for Inquiry Submissions is St Paul's Centre, Dumaresq Street, Jersey
Transcripts and supporting documents from the public hearings are available here.
The Inquiry office at Seaton Place is now closed.
