A States of Jersey senator is urging islanders who may have been abused while in care to come forward.
It follows a police investigation into allegations of physical and sexual abuse against children dating back to the 1960s.
The investigation is currently focusing on Haute de la Garenne Care home and the Jersey Sea Cadets.
Senator Stuart Syvret says it is essential those with concerns call a helpline or contact police.
Police say 23 people have already called helplines set up by the island's Historic Abuse Enquiry Team.
Within Jersey: 0800 169 1173
Outside Jersey: + 44(0)20 7825 7489
Both men and women have called the helplines. The allegations of abuse span a 45-year period.
The States of Jersey and the management of the Sea Cadets are co-operating fully with the inquiry.
Investigators already have the names of a number of victims and witnesses, some of whom have already spoken to officers.
Historical Abuse Enquiry Team
Over the coming weeks the team will be contacting the remaining names on the list and are asking anyone else with information to contact the Historical Abuse Enquiry Team.
A police spokesperson said they were working with the NSPCC in the UK to provide a confidential counselling service for those concerned who would like such assistance.
