The basic details of a curatorship are publicly available at the Public Registry. Searches may be undertaken for free by anyone attending at the Registry; alternatively searches may be made by Public Registry staff for a charge.
Details of this service may be found on the Public Registry webpage:
Public Registry records
Because this information is already publicly available it is absolutely exempt information under Article 23 of the Freedom of Information (Jersey) Law 2011 and we are not obliged to supply it under that law. However, in this case we have checked in the Public Registry and have found no records of any curatorship for the particular individual.
Please note that sensitive personal information such as evidence supporting an application for appointment of a curator is not available for public search.
For further background information including reporting concerns or requesting specific detailed information about a particular curatorship, please see the following:
