Child Protection Service launched in Jersey

A new service has been set up in Jersey to coordinate child protection on the island. The formation of this service is a result of  Williamson Report, published in 2008.  The  report  recommended an independent service, adequately resourced,  to look after the Jersey children who are on the Child Protection Register.

The new Independent Safeguarding and Standards service aims to co-ordinate the various agencies involved in child protection and achieve “better outcomes for each child”.
