Children and Youth At-Risk Table (CHART)
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 15 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 2021, CHART had supported 102 meetings and accepted 269 cases of vulnerable 6 to 19 year-olds.
- The average age of a CHART case has remained stable at 14 years old with youth identifying as male representing 65% of all cases.
- CHART welcomes referrals from all neighbourhoods with its first 269 cases being distributed across Surrey neighbourhoods as follows: Newton: 36%, Guildford: 20%, Whalley: 15%, Fleetwood: 12%, Cloverdale: 8%, South Surrey: 7%, and Unknown: 2%.
- As of the end of March 2021, 113 CHART cases had been concluded as connected to one or more services meaning these 113 children and youth can be said to have experienced a significant reduction in risk for gang involvement as a result of multi-agency collaboration.
One of the original targets of SAFE was to increase programs and services in the neighbourhoods of Newton, Guildford, and Whalley. 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.
- Children, youth or families in need of help connect with a service provider or referral agency.
- CHART member or referral agency refers the individual to the table.
