Services for children and young people
This 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 three 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).
Responding to child and young person concern reports
This theme includes data on the total number of concern reports received and the proportion of these 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 Child Protection Helpline, and the number of children and young people involved in these concern and ROSH reports.
Keeping children and young people safe
This theme includes data on children and young people entering out-of-home care (OOHC), children and young people exiting OOHC, and children and young people in statutory OOHC.
Stable and nurturing environments for children and young people
This theme includes data on children and young people in out-of-home care, children and young people on Guardianship Orders and placements for Aboriginal children and young people.
