Jersey Construction Council

Your board is actively working with Government representatives to ensure those working in our industry remain safe and looked after whilst we work our way through this very difficult time. Guidance on what we, as an industry, can do will be communicated as soon as we are able. In the event of a complete, or partial shutdown, we will work to ensure those in our industry have access to financial support in line with other sectors. Unfortunately, we are unable to offer advice relating to specific  individual situations and recommend those questions are put to Government directly through the helpline 445566.

The links below contain useful information and will be added to, amended and updated when appropriate.

Anyone who is unsure as to whether their construction site is deemed vital is being told to email constructioncovid@gov.je.
