Start date: 06/06/2024 | End date: 06/06/2024


Are you ready to transform the future for children and young people in our community? We invite you to be part of an exciting journey that promises to revolutionise the way we access and utilise place-based data.

Powered by administrative, census, and survey data, The Australian Child and Youth Wellbeing Atlas (ACYWA) is an online data insight platform that empowers us to make informed decisions for a brighter future. The Atlas includes data for children and young people 0 to 24 across all ARACY Nest domains (health, learning, material basics, loved and safe etc). It holds 500+ data sets including non-publicly available data from People WA.

Experience the ACYWA firsthand as we showcase its powerful functionalities. This session is designed to be informative and non-committal. All Peel region community members, community service organisations, daycare educators, teachers, youth services, and local government officers are welcome.

Please bring your own device, ideally a laptop or tablet.
