Our Kids Network launches bulletin series to transform survey data into action
The numbers from the 2021 Halton Youth Impact Survey are in – and Our Kids Network is excited to move into the next phase of the project: transforming knowledge into action that will support child and youth wellbeing in our community. In the spring of 2021, 2,599 youth aged 9-18 across Halton participated in the initiative, which was implemented by OKN as part of a national pilot project led by UNICEF Canada, the Canadian Index of Wellbeing, the Ontario Trillium Foundation, and the Medavie Health Foundation. Results from the survey were released in November 2021 and are available through OKN’s website. To support its community partners in translating the robust data from the survey into actionable decisions around policies, services, and programming, OKN will deliver a series of themed bulletins throughout 2022. The first bulletin, in May, focuses on Youth Mental Health.
