General description

The information presented here shows the predominant issues for children and young people who received counselling. This data can be split by year, area, predominant issues and gender.

Data collection and calculation

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.
