About the consultation

The Jersey Care Commission standards are statements which set clear expectations about how care services should be provided.

The standards for children and young people’s residential care have been written with care experienced young people to:

  • show what children and young people should expect from the care they receive.
  • set out what the people who provide care must do to meet the expectations of children and young people.
  • provide a structure that can be used for inspection.

The standards will apply to all providers of children and young people’s residential care which includes care homes, secure accommodation, and residential respite settings where children and young people live or stay and received personal support, personal care or nursing care.

(Please note that the Jersey Care Commission will become independent from the States of Jersey upon the introduction of the Regulation of Care (Jersey) Law 2014 in 2019)
