Memorial designs unveiled | Jersey Evening Post

Children and Housing Minister Sam Mezec with designs for a memorial to children in care (29346426)

The memorial forms part of the government’s response to the Independent Jersey Care Inquiry after a citizens’ panel – that includes survivors of child abuse – recommended that a memorial be erected as part of a legacy project to acknowledge victims and their families.

The 2017 inquiry report laid bare a catalogue of failings in Jersey’s care system over many decades which allowed abuse of children to be perpetrated and go undetected.

The designs are on display at Private & Public’s gallery in Phillips Street from today until Saturday, between 10am and 6pm each day. Islanders will be able to visit the gallery to see the designs as well as viewing them online.

The citizens’ panel would like to hear Islanders’ views about the designs before the final choice is announced in November.
