RAYNET which stands for Radio Amateurs Emergency Network is an Emergency Communications service provided for the community voluntarily by licenced Radio Amateurs. It is intended as a back-up and/or additional communications facility in an emergency and is not designed to assume responsibility from the statutory Emergency Services. Radio Amateurs are permitted within their licence to operate in an emergency or properly constituted exercise for the following organisations (“User Services”):- Police, Fire and Ambulance Services St John Ambulance British Red Cross Society HM Coastguard WRVS Salvation Army Emergency Planning Officers Local Health Authority Government Department Public Utility The Jersey RAYNET Group work closely with the Jersey Emergency Planning Office (EPO) attending the EPO Meetings along with the emergency services and their associated agencies. We provide support for things like air crashes, ferry disasters, local searches and anything where additional communications would be required anywhere in the Island at any time. We can provide communications locally, nationally and if required worldwide especially when other forms of communication have failed. Apart from emergencies we are able to provide communications for community events such as the Battle of Flowers, road rallies, marathons, fetes and Air Display etc. This is all voluntary and is good training for members of the group. To be able to provide these facilities we have a considerable amount of different radio equipment which all has to be provided, maintained and sometimes replaced, and we are currently raising funds for a communications command vehicle that can be used anywhere in the Island to communicate with the emergency services.

History of the Brooke Hospital for Animals (“The Brooke”)
In 1930, our founder, Mrs Dorothy Brooke, travelled to Egypt's capital, Cairo, where she encountered thousands of ex-cavalry horses being used as beasts of burden on its streets. Many of them had seen service in the First World War. After the conflict ended in 1918 they had been sold by the British Army into a life of hard labour. Mrs Brooke was tormented by the memory of the pitiful creatures she saw. On her return to England she wrote a letter to the Morning Post, which later became the Daily Telegraph, exposing their plight and appealing for funds to help save them. The public was so moved they responded with the equivalent today of £20,000 to help end their suffering. Within three years, Mrs Brooke had set up a committee to help fund the purchase of 5,000 of these tragic animals. Most were old and in the final stages of collapse and had to be humanely destroyed but thanks to this remarkable woman they all ended their lives peacefully with love and dignity.
What The Brooke does
The Brooke’s methods are simple, inexpensive and can be learned and implemented by local people. We build water troughs and shade shelters. We don't prosecute, campaign or get involved in politics. Animals in work can enjoy companionship and social interaction with people and their own species. We believe that working animals should be rewarded with consideration, care and relief of suffering. Teaching kindness to animals is at the heart of what we do.
The Brooke’s vision is a world in which working horses, donkeys and mules are free from suffering.To make this vision a reality, the Brooke delivers practical programmes and provides support, advice and infrastructure to its global network of employees, partners and supporters.
Brooke staff and staff employed by Brooke-funded affiliates and partners provide veterinary and animal health services in order to relieve the suffering of working horses, donkeys and mules.
Thousands of training sessions take place every year so that community animal health workers can treat working horses, donkeys and mules locally.
We also undertake valuable, practical research to support our evidence-based approach and help communities to better help their own horses, donkeys and mules, by building skills.
On a global scale, we also seek to influence governments and other institutions to raise the profile of working equine animals on the policy and development agendas.
In addition we lead from the front, in the field of animal welfare, ensuring our rigorous standards and guidelines are applied in all the areas where we work.
The Jersey Supporters Group (“JSG”)
The aim of the JSG is to raise £20,000 per year. This is the cost of keeping a mobile veterinary unit on the road for 12 months in Lahore, Pakistan. The unit consists of a large van which carries a vet, vet’s assistant, farrier and harness maker, plus the supply of drugs used to medicate the hard-working donkeys, mules and horses over a large area. As well as treating these working animals, the mobile unit also carries out training sessions geared at educating owners on how better to look after their animals.
For example, some owners think that if they slit the donkey’s nostrils, this will allow the animal to take in more air and then the animal will work harder and for longer hours. Brooke invests a great deal of time educating the local population. This is an ongoing effort to try and change habits and beliefs that are passed down from generation to generation.
Fund-raising is achieved mostly through holding our own events although occasionally other charities generously allow us to have a presence at their events.
The Bukit Lawang Trust is a Charitable Trust that was established in response to the flood that hit the small village of Bukit Lawang, North Sumatra, Indonesia, in November 2003, wiping out the village and killing at least 300 people.

The building is now used as an education centre with a free kindergarten running Monday - Friday 8.00am - 10.30am. Every afternoon from 2pm onwards there are free english lesson for children from surrounding villages. Two nights a week there are free english lessons for adults too.

(formerly known as Jersey Society for Deaf Children & Young Adults)

Evidence shows the lack of these basic skills has a negative impact on children’s life chances unless they receive help at an early stage.
Children with low literacy levels may suffer low self-esteem, may become disengaged and have poor attendance at school.
Poor readers are more likely to find employment challenging later on.
In partnership with the States of Jersey Department of Education, we deliver:
Reading Recovery programme run by specialist teachers
Training for teaching assistants in Better Reading @ Primary
An army of trained volunteers who read with children on a regular basis
82% of Jersey children in States schools reach expected standards in reading at Key Stage 1. In England overall it’s 90%. Literacy, numeracy, writing and communication are fundamental skills that most children master with little difficulty.
However, some children find it difficult to grasp these essential skills and, even in the early years of education, they fall behind the standard expected of their age group. There is a great deal of evidence that shows the negative impact these gaps have on children’s life chances unless they receive help at an early stage.
Fortunately, there are tried and tested ways of supporting children to overcome these early difficulties and to catch up with their peers. In the UK the key players are charitable organisations, mobilising the expertise to make effective interventions and working alongside teachers and parents.
Our reading volunteers commit to one hour per week during term time to listen to children read on a one to one basis. All volunteers undergo specialised training before they start mentoring any children and will need to complete a Disclosure & Barring Service (DBS) check.

We have teams of experienced and highly qualified nurses operating a range of services including, Health Visitors, School and Children’s Nursing, District and Specialist Nursing as well as Home Care.
We are a forward-thinking, modern charity that has adapted in order to provide the services that islanders need today. In order to continue providing this breadth of vital public services, we need to raise £2million per year in voluntary donations.
The services we provide include: District nursing, Home care, Health visitors, School nurses, Looked after children, Child accident prevention, Specialist nursing, Tissue viability and wound care, Continence and stoma care and Palliative care.
We operate as a Christian church in Jersey, offering the opportunity for collective worship at our main Sunday service (currently held at Hautlieu school) as well as through smaller 'Life Group' meetings held across the island each week. In addition, we seek to engage with the community, offering help and support in practical ways across a range of activities. This is achieved through a number of our own specific projects as well as by working in conjunction with other local charitable organisations (including current members of the Association of Jersey Charities). We have recently secured the purchase of the former Odeon cinema building in St Helier from which we plan to expand our community activities even further, offering services to the people of St Helier as well as the larger island population
Freedom For Life Ministries (FFLM) exists to see lives changed, families restored and the community strengthened. The aim of FFLM is to advise, assist and befriend local prisoners in HMP La Moye and then as they re-settle into the community, to help them live in freedom from their previous lifestyle and become contributing members of society. FFLM believes that the greatest way to reduce crime and disorder in the Island is to help those who are involved in such behaviour change their lifestyle. Those with whom FFLM support are often given little chance of developing a new lifestyle by society because of their past behaviour. FFLM exists to give them that second chance, in a non-judgemental, future-focussed way without minimising the seriousness of their past.

There is still a big problem of HIV, AIDS and Malaria in Developing World, with many children becoming orphans. We help to build orphanages to give them shelter & food, and an education. The schools that we build are in rural areas where children would have to walk for many hours to get to a school which would probably be overcrowded, 60 or more to a class, not enough desks or study material, and may be cancelled due to lack of staff or bad weather. Island Aid for World Children also builds medical clinics in rural villages to ensure that they have access to trained staff, and are able to get help when it is needed. All projects are helped to become self-sufficient, and electricity and boreholes are installed.

To work with people who are sleeping rough, in order to link them with mainstream services and provide care and support to those living on the street.
This is currently achieved mainly through the work of the Outreach Coordinator, in conjunction with a small group of volunteers.
The charity first began with a home care service in 1982. The work done in the community is still central to what is offered today and the Specialist Palliative Care team are on call all day, every day, 365 days a year.
We offer day care facilities three days a week and have twelve bedrooms on the In-Patient Unit for people needing more intensive care. We also offer physiotherapy, lymphoedma and complementary therapies.
In addition, confidential emotional support is available to islanders of all ages through the Community Bereavement Service, regardless of the nature of bereavement and how long ago it happened.
We recognise and respect that each person is unique and aim to improve the quality of life for patients, and their families, according to their own personal needs.
Until the Association was formed, all diving emergencies had to be transported to a chamber in either Guernsey or the UK by sea or air - methods which were always under threat of delays through bad weather. These delays could mean the difference between total recovery or permanent illness or disability for bends victims. Delay in the onset of treatment for pulmonary barotrauma (burst lung) or embolism can prove fatal.
In 1993, the charity changed it's name to Jersey Hyperbaric Treatment Centre to better reflect the aims and objectives of the charity. In 1998, the chamber was relocated to its current site, an old German bunker on Albert Pier between the RNLI station and the Albert Pier terminal.
The chamber is operated by a team of trained volunteers, led by a volunteer doctor. The team comprises divers, technicians and doctors. All volunteers are on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 52 weeks a year, undertaking training and treatments in their own time.
To support transition within the Island from present form to one less reliant on fossil fuels. To find ways of creating a more sustainable, less wasteful society.
To promote the need for Conservation strategies, in order to preserve the Islands importance as a unique and key Marine Environment. On a voluntary basis the groups' divers carry out the monitoring of underwater species and habitats full-filling the requirements needed to safe-guard the long-term future of the islands community. Approved methods for recording Biotopes are applied, ensuring all evidence withstands detailed political scrutiny. Jersey Seasearch although a Volunteer group, collects and processes data to a high professional level, supplying records, including images and video to National and Channel Islands Biodiversity databases. Without our surveys, there would be negligible sub-tidal information and therefore little to challenge environmentally sensitive proposals. The groups work has been instrumental in the setting up of protection zones, sustainable fishing practises and halting the wholesale destruction of seabed communities. The UK Marine Conservation Society supports and oversees the groups operating framework and project implementation
Educating the community is a key aim and the group continue to develop learning programmes for schools and community groups based on our findings. Through our Workshops and media resources, we are hoping to help the Islands population learn proactively about how to safeguard species in the Channel Island waters. We believe Education rather than legislation is the way forward, in preserving the Islands future as a healthy place to live.
Our monitoring programme seeks to provide students of all ages, abilities and backgrounds with the knowledge and methods to identify and record indicators of migration, marine population changes and the impact of the diverse environmental effects.

Jersey Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (Inc.)
History of the JSPCA:
In 1868 the Jersey Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals' (JSPCA) was founded and Miss Frances Elizabeth Wilson established the Jersey Animals' Shelter itself in 1913. In 1925 the JSPCA formed a Committee to assist Miss Wilson in her work and in 1936, the JSPCA and Jersey Animals' Shelter amalgamated. This was a lifelong wish of Miss Wilson and took place shortly before her death.
JSPCA Animals' Shelter Services:
The JSPCA Animals' Shelter provides a range of services relating to animal care and welfare, offering help and advice for all members of the public. These services include:
The JSPCA works closely with the Police and the Sates Veterinary Officer in investigating cases of alleged cruelty or mistreatment of animals. Members of the public are able to contact the Shelter for advice should they have any concerns about the welfare of an animal.
Sir Philip Bailhache opened the JSPCA Animals' Shelter Giles Howard Memorial Education Centre on 29th June 1996. It plays a vital role in introducing children to animals and teaching them the importance of caring for and respecting both pets and wildlife. It is widely recognised that education about animal welfare from a young age is imperative to the improvement of attitudes towards the treatment of animals, which, in turn, is fundamentally important in the prevention of cruelty to animals. The Education centre works in close conjunction with the Jersey's schools and has developed a number of carefully crafted workshops that support the curriculum.
The JSPCA Animals' Shelter provides an ambulance service whereby members of the public can always telephone for advice or assistance whenever required. Ambulance staff are available to rescue injured animals, collect strays and assist the public in any way and they are thoroughly trained in basic animal first aid, thus providing an invaluable service in ensuring that help is always available for any animal or bird in distress.
Lost and Found Service
The JSPCA Animals' Shelter collects and cares for many of Jersey's stray animals and runs a comprehensive lost and found service. Every effort is made to reunite each stray animal received at the Shelter with its owner as quickly as possible. The JSPCA Animals' Shelter strongly recommends microchipping pets for identification purposes.
Regardless of the reason or circumstances for being unable to keep a pet, the JSPCA Animals' Shelter will take in all unwanted companion animals and endeavour to find them new and loving homes. Every animal is thoroughly health-checked and temperament assessed before being placed in a new home. Most animals are neutered, vaccinated and microchipped (as appropriate for the species) before becoming available for re-homing and all cats are blood tested to establish whether they have been infected with Feline Leukaemia Virus (FeLV) and Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV). Once a prospective new owner has been found, a home check will be carried out to ensure the animal's requirements can be met. The Animals' Shelter has one of the best re-homing records in Britain. The Shelter also runs a Foster Animal; Scheme, which offers free veterinary treatment for life to elderly animals re-homed from the Shelter or to animals the Shelter re-homes with on-going medical conditions, such as Diabetes mellitus.
The JSPCA Animals' Shelter has facilities to board both dogs and cats. Both the Kennels and Cattery have recently been rebuilt and designed with maximum comfort and hygiene in mind and with the aim of minimising the risk and spread of disease. Each animal has its own individual kennel with an outside run and boarding dogs are walked on-site on a daily basis. Every day each animal is given a hands-on health check. The Shelter also offers an ¯Emergency Boarding¯ service for which a number of kennels are kept available at all times. This service offers boarding facilities for pets belonging to people who may have to go into hospital.
The JSPCA understands and respects the special relationship that develops between people and their pets. On contacting the JSPCA Animals' Shelter, bereaved owners will find a sympathetic ear and can be reassured that their pet will be treated with the utmost dignity and care. The JSPCA Animals' Shelter provides the only Pet Cremation Service on Jersey and owns the Animals' Cemetery at First Tower.
The JSPCA Affiliation Scheme was developed and introduced in 2001, whereby local animal charities and organisations are invited to ¯join forces¯ and work together with the JSPCA to promote animal welfare and ensure that scarce resources are best utilised. The aim of this scheme is to present a united front against animal cruelty and promote all aspects of animal welfare.
JSY is a local charity that has been set up in Jersey to provide support for vulnerable and at risk young people in the Island.
All money we raise is used locally to directly fund targeted projects for young people. These currently include ‘LGBTQ Youth Jersey’ and ‘The My Time Project’, a project for young carers.
We are also looking to support further projects where young people will benefit directly from any funds received.

We want to make a difference and give the young people of Jersey the very best start in life.

The Safer St Helier Community Partnership and the initiatives it implements is owned and run by members of the community.
SSHCP focuses on issues that are most relevant to the communities in St Helier and seeks to implement solutions that are both practical and sustainable for those communities.
Every initiative is based upon an in-depth study of the particular issue. Whether it is late-night transport or under-age drinking SSHCP will conduct its own research in order to understand the scale of the problem, understand the impact that it has on the local community and inform interventions.
Each initiative will be monitored and evaluated to ensure that it is working as intended and the outcomes are those the SSHCP are seeking to achieve.
SSHCP is very aware of the damage that so called ¯Quick-wins¯ can do to local communities. Our initiatives are all sustainable long-term programmes aimed at making effective long-lasting changes.

"To provide clean, sustainable water supplies to African communities"
WellWater is partnered with the international children's charity, Compassion UK in the first instance to drill a well outside the town of Koudougou,Burkino Faso.
WellWater's first project involves drilling a borehole, capping it with a robust wellhead piping water to a 2,000 litre storage tank.
This will provide fresh reliable water for the local school where children will receive hygiene education and washing facilities. Our target is to raise ¯17,400 for project Toega.
Our intention is to provide more such wells by acquiring a technical technical understanding and learning efficiencies in providing further water projects to rural african communities.
This is a very exciting opportunity for Jersey people to make a real difference initially in one of the poorest countries; Burkina Faso.
