Professionals, Carers & Parents


“It takes a community to raise a child”

Being part of a community that shows care through action can build belonging and challenge stigma. Everyone benefits.

Our community work covers three broad areas:

1. Organising fun activities

From competitive cake-baking over Zoom to meals out and casual catch-ups, young people can get to know each other and Jersey Cares.

2. Connecting care-experienced young people with peers in other countries

People can motivate and encourage each other and come together and make change in how we care for children who most need our love and attention.

3. Linking individuals and organisations who want to support, with opportunities to help

We have seen that many people and organisations want to help people with experience of care. We work alongside these people, and people with experience of care to work out how best to do so and take advantage of the vast kindness of our island.

If you would like to help – even if you’re not sure how – please get in touch! We’d be happy to discuss over a cuppa.
