What is the community's role?

Future Jersey comes from the voice of Islanders and, as such, it is a long-term, community vision for everyone - the States Assembly, businesses, charities and individual Islanders. If it is to succeed, everyone needs to work together and play an active role in whatever way they can.

The Island Outcomes, which sit at the heart of the vision, describe the issues that affect Islanders' quality of life - safety, good health, a clean environment. Government has a big role to play in making progress towards these outcomes, but it cannot do it alone.

For example, take the outcome 'Islanders enjoy long, healthy, active lives'. The indicators, which measure this outcome, cover the following:

  • healthy life expectancy

  • obesity

  • alcohol consumption

  • smoking

  • mental wellbeing

Policies and strategies from Health and Social Services, as well as other government departments and partner agencies, need to be in place to help make progress against these indicators. But there is an opportunity for businesses and charities to play their own part, in whatever way they see fit. It is also down to individual Islanders to take responsibility for their own health and lifestyle choices.

One Island, one vision

The community's efforts, as with government, need to take into account the vision as a whole - not just individual outcomes.

To this end, any organisation or strategy can be placed at the heart of the vision framework to see how its work affects Jersey's community, environment and economy.

This approach also helps to identify the impact of issues, such as climate change or an ageing population. It also allows a particular section of the population, for example, children, to be put at the centre - this promotes thinking about not just their education, but their safety, health, access to sport and culture, and their housing.
