Jersey Cares Limited
Membership Number: AJC543 / Registered Charity Number: 437
Jersey Cares is an independent organisation for people with experience of care. By this, we mean children, young people and adults of any age who have, or have had, a social worker involved in family life. The person could live on or off-island. This could be:
- Foster care
- Residential care
- Supported accommodation
- ‘Secure’ care
- Mums and / or Dads but have a Social Worker
- Extended family or friends
Our vision is love, belonging and opportunity for care-experienced people. We listen to and amplify the voice and needs of people with care experience. Advocacy makes sure a person has a strong voice, is heard and has as much control over their own lives as possible.
We respond to make sure change happens by taking action through one-to-one advocacy, collaboration and influencing. We also offer ways for young people to share their views and experiences to influence public awareness, practice, policies and legislation. We’ve built many links with others across the UK and elsewhere doing similar work.
We listen to you and make sure the people who make decisions about your life listen to what matters to you and we can offer help in many different ways.
Advocacy: Listening to what matters to you, we make sure you know your rights, that you are heard and that people respond
Community: Activities, connections and offers from local organisations who want to help.
Influencing: Listening to what you want to change, we create opportunities to drive those changes. These are creative and fun!.
If you are not sure about how we can help – please ask! We would love to hear from you.
