Please note – The Child and Youth data dashboards are not currently available. The Child and Youth stream are currently reviewing their KPI indicators and will be building data dashboards once consultation with the sector is complete. The indicators below are the historical suite and include technical definitions only. Please contact the KPI Programme team if you have any questions or would like to contribute to the development of indicators for this stream.

In May 2020, the KPI Programme received an 18-month contract variation from the Ministry of Health to explore the development of a youth forensic KPI stream. As part of this variation, the KPI Programme is undertaking research to provide an evidence base for potential indicators that relate to the national youth forensic model of care. Development of potential indicators is done through a collaborative process with the sector and the Ministry of Health.
If you are interested in finding out more about the work we are doing in youth forensic mental health services, or would like to contribute to the scoping of this potential new stream, please contact us.
Our Child and Youth stream leads represent our sector contributors and work alongside the KPI Programme team to deliver sector events and guide continuous improvement initiatives. Get to know our current stream leads.
