Responses and advice to Government and Scrutiny

One of the ways the Commissioner's office protects the rights of children and young people is to comment on proposed policies and legislation that may affect them. We do this by:

  • giving evidence to scrutiny panels around issues that affect children and young people,
  • responding to consultations around issues that affect children and young people, and
  • writing briefings for States Members

 

We will also provide advice and evidence to United Nations monitoring bodies as part of the reporting cycles for the international human rights treaties that Jersey has signed up to.
