About public policies

Public policies are set by government to address problems in the community or to achieve desired outcomes. They can involve:

  • laws
  • strategies
  • projects
  • action plans

The Council of Ministers decide the types of policies that come into effect. Policies that involve laws or big changes are debated and agreed by the States Assembly. 

There are a number of policy plans and ways of evaluating how well we’re doing.

Key policy plans and performance measures

​Public Plans and Strategies

Government Programme 2022 to 2023


The Government Programme is a plan reflecting the most important issues to Islanders, as expressed during the election. It is informed by data and evidence and focusses on the economic, social, cultural, and environmental wellbeing of Islanders both now and in the future.


It includes the Common Strategic Policy, the Government Plan, the Ministerial Plans, and the Delivery Plans.



Common Strategic Policy

The Common Strategic Policy sets out ministers' high level ambitions for Jersey from 2023 to 2026.

Government Plan  

The Government Plan sets out the funding position for the Government, including income, and capital and revenue expenditure from 2023 to 2026.

Ministerial Plans

The Ministerial Plans set out individual Minister's priorities and the legislative programme for 2023.

Delivery Plans

The Delivery Plans set out detailed plans to support the delivery of the Government Programme for 2023.

Jersey Performance Framework


The Performance Framework is where we measure the progress that Jersey makes towards achieving 'sustainable wellbeing'.

Sustainable wellbeing is a way of measuring the progress of a society, rather than focussing on Gross Domestic Product (GDP) and Gross Value Added (GVA).

Government Performance Measures


These provide a detailed overview of the delivery of services by government departments. Key areas include heath, education, customer services, community safety and criminal justice.
