Project summary

Focus Area:

Project objective

  • Upgrade CIMS to capture information relating to the disability and support needs of each young person fully and accurately.

Why is this important?

Upgrade will ensure disability related data is stored consistently and accurately and will allow for improved data collection relating to young people with disability.

Upgrade will be designed to align with current NDIS data requirements. 

What will success look like?

New systems and supporting information and training are implemented

CIMS data more accurately reflects disability in the Youth Justice custodial population
