The Child and Youth Workstream aims to improve the mental and physical health of children and young people in Canterbury through their life course from before birth to the transition to adulthood.

The workstream provides leadership for the development and provision of health and social services for children and young people.  This includes agreeing outcomes and performance indicators for healthcare for children and young people, prioritising service development activity to meet national response and local imperatives, recommending transformation service improvement and identifying areas requiring redesign, innovation and evaluation. 

The Child and Youth Workstream comprises of a core group, a child subgroup and a youth subgroup.  Established in 2012, it is a key point of integration between health, justice, education and social services with membership from across these perspectives and links with other Canterbury Clinical Network Workstreams and Service Level Alliances, as well as the South Island Alliance's Workstream covering child and young person's health.
