In 2010, the Children (Guernsey and Alderney) Law, 2008 introduced the Child, Youth and Community Tribunal (CYCT), a new legal system to deal with concerns about children and young people.
The system comprises two distinct and independent parts: the Children's Convenor and the Child Youth & Community Tribunal. Both of these parts are supported by the Convenor and Tribunal Board (the Board). The Board sets the overall strategic direction for both services and monitors their performance. The Board is responsible for securing the resources required to enable the Children’s Convenor and the CYCT to carry out their duties in accordance with the Law. The Board is also responsible for publishing the annual reports of the Children’s Convenor and the President of the CYCT.
