The Independent Jersey Care Inquiry has been set up to establish what went wrong in the Island's care system over many years and to find answers for people who suffered abuse as children.
The hearings will be held in public, although at times the Panel may hear evidence in private session.The hearings will start in due course, once all necessary arrangements are in place. Dates and times will be published on this website.
At the moment the Inquiry Team is collecting evidence from potential witnesses. These include people who were in care, those who worked in Jersey care services or came into contact with them, whatever their perspective.

The privacy and confidentiality of potential witnesses will be respected and details of how this will be achieved can be found on the website.
