In 2012, the Children and Youth Services Network identified a list of key indicators impacting the health and well-being of children, youth and families living in Hastings-Prince Edward that were more than 10% worse than provincial averages.
After a vote of members in January 2013, the two red flag issues receiving the highest number of votes were:
√ Food Security (based on the Canadian Community Health Survey 2012); and
√ Kindergarten Students who are Developmentally at Risk (based on 2009 and 2011 Early Childhood Development Instrument (EDI) results).
With financial support from United Way Quinte, a Report Card 2013 brochure was developed and distributed throughout Hastings-Prince Edward to raise community awareness around these red flag issues and inform the community that CYSN, in collaboration with other networks and community groups, were developing action plans to address these red flag issues.
