The independence of the Jersey Care Inquiry has been underlined by the chair, Frances Oldham QC. Mrs Oldham was speaking after the announcement by the Home Secretary Teresa May of a national review looking at historical cases of child sex abuse. The Independent Jersey Care Inquiry is to begin public hearings later this month on 22 July.
Mrs Oldham said: ""Our inquiry is independent of the review announced yesterday and we proceed as planned."
Anyone with experience of the island's care system, including those who were abused or worked within it, is invited to get in touch with the Inquiry team.
