Child Intervention Outcome Indicators Data

Child invention outcomes define key results that the child intervention system seeks to achieve.


Child intervention services are provided when there are concerns that a child or youth is being neglected or abused by their parent or guardian.

By measuring child intervention outcomes over time, we're able to:

  • assess service impact and performance
  • explain linkages between services provided and outcomes for recipients
