This project is to complete a 3 year pilot project to establish a Child and Youth Advocacy Centre (CYAC) within the City of Vancouver. The specific vision for this centre is a co-located, multi-disciplinary, child centered approach to services for children who have experienced abuse and their non-offending family members and/or caregivers. In 2011, a group of mandated stakeholders came together and completed a two year comprehensive Needs Assessment and Feasibility Study to see if the need existed in Vancouver for a CYAC. The results of this first phase demonstrated both a need in Vancouver for a CYAC and that the stakeholders believed this project was feasible. Quantitative data demonstrated enough cases to warrant a CYAC. The qualitative data from this study was incredibly compelling, as it suggested that co-location of services for children/youth who experience abuse in Vancouver has the potential to reduce the barriers to joint interviews and reduce the travel time for children/youth and their non-offending family members. Any elimination of barriers could address possible under-reporting of child physical and sexual abuse. Following this, the stakeholders completed phase 2 - the development of a pilot project. After extensive research of CYAC models, the group believed that a not for profit was the appropriate model. This project (phase 3) will test and evaluate the establishment and operation of a CYAC in Vancouver.
