Our Pledge to the Children and Young People of Jersey

Following the publication of the Independent Jersey Care Inquiry in 2017, we at SoJP wanted to make our own personal organisational pledge to the island’s children and young people. One year on and we offially published our pledge today.

In fact, there are 10 of them! The Children’s Commissioner’s island wide survey gave us some food for thought and by using feedback from that and other consultation, including the Youth Voice project with the Jersey Youth Service, we’ve worked with partners and key stakeholders to craft our pledges.

With approximately 18,000 children and young people living in Jersey, these pledges are aligned to the emerging States children and young people plan and are made up of 4 sections; grow up safely, live healthy lives, learn and achieve and are seen and heard.

Helping us launch our pledges today were 30 school children from local primary schools, who came for a tour of police HQ and visited our Force Control Room, Custody Suite and Scientific Services. They met some of our staff and enjoyed a healthy lunch with us too, kindly donated by the Co-Op, M&S and Waitrose.

Deputy Chief Officer Julian Blazeby said: “It’s really important that we, as police officers build positive relationships and engage with children and young people. We recognise the important role we can play in ensuring the island’s young people grow up in a safe environment that helps them flourish. We will work hard to achieve these 10 pledges over the next couple of years, which we hope will have a positive impact on as many children and young people as possible”.
