See how the Children and Youth At-Risk Table initiative operates.

The Children and Youth At-Risk Table (CHART) is a proactive initiative that supports children and youth before they show negative behaviours or get involved in criminal activity. CHART also supports those who may already be exhibiting anti-social behaviours or be at-risk of gang involvement.

CHART is one of the 11 SAFE programs and involves 19 partner agencies collaborating weekly to identify at-risk children and youth and support them as well as their family with a tailored and coordinated intervention plan.

CHART Accomplishments to Date

  • By the end of March 2023, 197 total CHART meetings had taken place accepting 517 at-risk 6 to 19 year-olds.

  • 465 of these children and youth had been closed by the end of March with 329 (71%) concluded as experiencing a significant reduction in risk for gang involvement.

  • The average age of a CHART client remains 14 years old with youth identifying as male representing 57% of all clients.
  • CHART welcomes referrals from all Surrey neighbourhoods with its 517 clients distributed as follows: Newton: 30%, Whalley: 23%, Guildford: 18%, Fleetwood: 9%, Cloverdale: 11%, South Surrey: 6%, and Unknown: 3%.

CHART has identified risk in these neighbourhoods as well as other pockets of Surrey and we are pleased to share that partners are providing services throughout the city.
