The goal of the research was to conduct a Needs Assessment in relation to services for in/at-risk groups of youth between the ages of 16-24 years of age within the Halton region:

1. To identify the existing services available to meet the needs of the youth

2. To identify the gaps/duplication within services in order to suggest future fundable solutions.

Launched May 2018: Halton Region Youth In/At Risk Research Report now has a companion website

The website was designed by students from the Interaction Design Program at Sheridan and profiles the Halton Region Youth In/At Risk research findings in an accessible way.
