New laws for a changing world

Changes in society and technology in the last forty years have had a significant impact on our family lives, but until now there has been no new Law governing children in Guernsey and Alderney.

Two new Laws for children and their families have been passed and come into effect in January 2010. These Laws affect everyone who has contact with children, from the children themselves, parents and teachers through to volunteer helpers and Advocates that work within this Legal framework.

This website aims to address the impact of the new law and will provide resources to understand your rights and obligations.
