Find out more about the development of a framework to support responsible use of information about children.
We are developing a comprehensive 'Children's Framework' to support the responsible use of children’s information. This will incorporate the legal requirements of The Data Protection (Bailiwick of Guernsey) Law, 2017 ('the Law') and will align with the relevant principles and provisions outlined in the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child . 

The framework will support and encourage high standards of legal and ethical handling of children’s data and encourage a comprehensive and inclusive approach to such processing in the Bailiwick.

The framework's intended outcomes are: 
  1. Production of clear, relevant and practical guidance on how best to look after children's data.
  2. Increased awareness and understanding of how important it is to treat children's data responsibly. 
  3. Encouraging a child-centric approach which normalises high standards of governance for anyone handling children’s data.
  4. Improved compliance with the Law around the processing of children's data.
Timeline for development of the Children's Framework:
