What do providers have to do?
All providers of a regulated activity must register with the Jersey Care Commission.
What will that mean?

- Care Home (Residential) services for adults and children
- Home Care services for adults and children
- Adult Day Care services
- Social Work

How do I register?
Please visit our website Registration and Guidance | Jersey Care Commission to download the applications forms.
You will be required to complete the forms and supply the supplementary documentation in the checklists at end of each form:
- Application for registration as a Provider of a Service
- Application for registration as a Manager of a Service
- Application for Registration of a Service
And what about managers?
It is a requirement for a provider to be registered in order to carry on a regulated activity, and for a manager to be registered for each service.
Providers must ensure that each registered service has a manager.
The provider and manager may be the same person however they must have the relevant skills, experience, and qualifications. If the provider does not have the appropriate skills, experience, or qualifications, they must appoint a separate manager as the person in charge, and take full-time, day to day control of the service. This manager must also register with the Commission
If a manager moves to another service they would be required to re-register.
What does the Care Commission have to do?
The Jersey Care Commission is required to register a provider in relation to a regulated activity only if we are satisfied that the provider is a fit person to carry out that activity and will comply with requirements imposed by the regulations.
What will the Commission do to support you?
You will be appointed a Regulation Officer upon application to assist you through the registration process and inspections and support you with queries you may have.
An application for registration is only complete when you have supplied all the information that we need to process it, and you have paid the required fee. If you submit your application and do not supply us with all the required information and/or the required fee, we will contact you and may have to return the application for completion.
