Is Jersey a good place to live?


"Is Jersey a great place to grow up?" That's the question being asked by Jersey's government.

Islanders attending two special meetings held by the States in the first two weeks of July are being asked if Jersey is a good place to live.

The government's first Children and Young People Plan is to be drawn up.

Deputy Ann Pryke, Jersey's Health and Social Services Minister, says the plan should reflect what islanders think is important for life in Jersey.

Once the plan is drafted, Deputy Pryke says a second round of consultations will take place in October.

Deputy Pryke is also Chair of the Children's Policy Group and she said: "We want the Plan to reflect what Islanders think is important so we are asking them to tell us what needs to be done to ensure that Jersey is a great place to grow up."

The Plan will set out what the island sees as the important services that most affect the experiences and life chances of Jersey's children and young people.

It will cover services provided by the States of Jersey and services provided by Jersey charities.

The two events are Wednesday 30 June from 7pm at Trinity Parish Hall and Thursday 15 July from 7pm at St Clement's Parish Hall.

Jersey is a great place to grow up as a child, it's a safe place compared to UK, schools are great and theres lots for children to do. But as soon as these children grow up to become teenagers, they seem to be forgotten about, theres absolutly nothing for them to do, which causes the issues of under age drinking and anti-social behaviour. I'm 19 now, but I was extrmemely bored of Jersey when I was 16-17 years old. Even now at 19 theres not enough places to go to keep entertained for us young adults. Alot of people my age are leaving Jersey, because of this!
