What is Jersey Cares?


Jersey Cares is an independent organisation for people with experience of care. By this, we mean children, young people and adults of any age who have, or have had, a social worker involved in family life. The person could live on or off-island. This could be:

Foster care

Residential care

Supported accommodation

‘Secure’ care

Mums and/or dads but have a social worker

Extended family or friends

Our vision is love, belonging and opportunity for care-experienced people. Advocacy makes sure a person has a strong voice, is heard and has as much control over their own lives as possible.

We respond to make sure change happens by taking action through one-to-one advocacy, collaboration and influencing. We also offer ways for young people to share their views and experiences to influence public awareness, practice, policies and legislation. We’ve built many links with others across the UK and elsewhere doing similar work.

The Jersey Cares Model provides an overview of how we work. You can also find more about what we do by clicking the links on the right hand side of this page.
