Every Child and Youth


To define a client profile of who access services and what services they seek, it is important to understand data on the age of children and youth served, what kind of services they access and how many services they require.

Why is this important?

Understanding who is seeking service and the type of services they access is important for sector effectiveness, clinical decision making, understanding the complexity of children and responding to the needs of a community. This information is shared with funders and policy makers to support planning and inform decision making.
