Child Abuse Citizen Panel’s planned memorial (FOI)

Produced by the Freedom of Information office
Authored by Government of Jersey and published on 09 March 2020.
Prepared internally, no external costs.



Are you able to confirm the total costs so far used by the Child Care Abuse Citizens Panel on Consultants for the planned Memorial?


Where were these costs, if any, taken from? Public purse or other funding?


Are you able to confirm that a design is already in place and set to go for the abuse Memorial?



The cost of the Citizens Panel process to the end of May 2019 was released in response to the following FOI request:

Care Inquiry Citizen’s Panel (FOI)

The total for professional fees (consultancy) in relation to the Citizens Panel process, since its inception in 2018 to the end of February 2020, is: £64,248.

The Legacy Project recommended by the Citizens Panel comprises four elements, of which the Care Memorial is the first:

1. Memorial

2. Jersey Children’s Day

3. Help and support for victims / survivors and their families

4. An emblem

These recommendations, together with a description of the process which was followed, have previously been published in Jersey Citizens Panel 2018 Final Report, available at the following link:

Jersey Citizens Panel 2018 report

It is not possible to allocate the costs of progressing individual elements of the Legacy Project within the total cost of the Citizens Panel process.


All costs associated with the Citizens Panel have been paid for with public funding.


We can confirm that a design for the Care Memorial is not already in place. The Government of Jersey launched an Invitation to Tender for the design and realisation of the Jersey Care Memorial on 14 February 2020. This opportunity is open to prospective suppliers until 30 April 2020 and has been advertised on the Jersey Gazette. See related links below:
