Services for children and young people

The Services for children and young people interactive dashboard presents statistics on DCJ service provision for vulnerable children and young people and their families. The key performance indicators reported in this dashboard are grouped into the following five main themes. Data for several performance indicators can also be further broken down to help understand demographic characteristics of these children and young people and the services they received in more detail (e.g., who reports these children and young people).

Key performance indicators

Targeted Early Intervention (TEI) services

The Targeted Earlier Intervention (TEI) program delivers flexible support to children, young people, families and communities experiencing or at risk of vulnerability. This program supports the people who need it earlier on, to make the biggest difference.

Child and young person concern reports

This theme includes data on the total number of concern reports received and the proportion of reports that meet the risk of significant harm (ROSH) threshold, a breakdown of reports by mandatory reporters and the types of issues assessed by the Department’s Helpline.
