A review into care in Jersey says the island needs to progress plans for a public memorial for survivors of abuse.

Creating a memorial was recommended by the Independent Jersey Care Inquiry as a way of the island acknowledging what happened.

The Care of Children in Jersey Review Panel is the second in a series of interim reports that examine the progress made, in implementing the recommendations from the Independent Jersey Care Inquiry

It says while there has been progress in some areas, there is still a lot to do.

The report will be available on the States Assembly website from 9.30am on Friday 8 November.

This review has once again highlighted that progress is being made addressing the issues set out by the Independent Jersey Care Inquiry. However, we are concerned that there is much more to do in order to address some of the bigger societal issues raised.

The Review Panel itself is part of an ongoing process of much needed change and we will continue to report back on the Government's progress, ensuring that the Care Inquiry recommendations are implemented correctly.

– Deputy Rob Ward, Scruity Panel Chairman
