General description

The information presented here shows the children and young people who have attended counselling. This data can be split by year, area, ethnicity and gender.

Data collection and calculation

Local authorities are required to provide anonymised information about their counselling services to the Welsh Government. This data informs the development of counselling services for children and young people in Wales. The data is collected from September to August each year.
In addition, local authorities commented that 322 children or young people who received counselling did not identify as male or female in 2021/22. The data collection form will be developed in future and include additional gender categories.
