Jersey Finance has signed up to the government's pledge to 'put children first.'

The organisation, which represents more than 160 financial services firms in the island, is the latest to back the campaign.

The eight-point pledge was first set up in 2018, when Ministers, States Members and public service leaders committed to improving the care of children and upholding their rights.

The Chief Executive of Jersey Finance says they are proud to back such an important campaign.

We are looking forward in particular to playing a positive role in improving educational outcomes for young Islanders and helping them to achieve their full potential.

Joe Moynihan, Chief Executive Officer of Jersey Finance

The Children's Minister has thanked Jersey Finance for signing up to the pledge.

It’s wonderful to see the support that the pledge has already received, and I would encourage even more Islanders, businesses and organisations to sign up as we all have a responsibility to put children first and to create a child-friendly island.

Senator Sam Mézec, Jersey's Children’s and Housing Minister

The scheme was first rolled-out across the island last year, with more than 1,000 people and organisations now having pledged their support.
