Call for written evidence
This year sees the start of Jersey’s examination under the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC). As part of this process, the Children’s Commissioner will be submitting a report to highlight key children’s rights issues in Jersey. We warmly invite charities, academics and other organisations to send in written evidence to inform our submission to the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child.
Legislative Gap Analysis
A big piece of work and a collaborative project with Swansea University’s Observatory on Human Rights of Children, this gap analysis has taken a year to complete. It provides a comprehensive, independent analysis of the extent to which Jersey legislation complies with the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC).

Reporting to the UN Committee
The UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) was extended to Jersey in 2014, meaning that the States of Jersey committed to protect, respect and fulfil children’s rights and to be assessed by the United Nations on its progress through a monitoring and reporting process. The role of the Children’s Commissioner is an important part of that process.
