The panel, led by Frances Oldham QC, spent two years investigating the Island’s care system since 1945 and heard from dozens of care leavers, people who claimed to have suffered abuse and alleged abusers

 

THE final report from the Independent Jersey Care Inquiry is due to be published in July, it has been announced.

In a statement, the inquiry panel said that subject to any unforeseen circumstances the report would be published on Monday 3 July.

The report, which will come three years after the first hearings were held, had been due by the end of 2016, however new information received by the panel at the last minute led to a delay.

The chairman of the Jersey Care Leavers Association, Carrie Modral, said last month that the delays had caused concerns and a sense of unease.
