​​​Research & Publications​
Report on Youth Delinquency
The Report on Youth Delinquency is a biennial publication by the NCPR, as a resource for those who work with youth-at-risk and youth offenders. The report covers a range of topics, including key statistics on the overall youth offending situation, information on publicly-funded support available to youth-at-risk and youth offenders, research findings on youth offending, among others.

The inaugural publication was a physical report titled the ​National Report on Youth Crime (2007-2013). ​Subsequent reports were renamed as ​Report on Youth Delinquency to reflect the inclusion of content on youth-at-risk, and released as digital reports to enhance access for those who work with youth-at-risk and youth offenders.

The latest publication by the NCPR, Report on Youth Delinquency 2021: I'm not difficult; I'm in a difficult situation, shifts the spotlight to the positive development of youth-at-risk and youth offenders, as well as the difficult family and global environments that many of these youth-at-risk and youth offenders may find themselves.

Benchmarks & Frameworks​
ACT SG Framework and Tools for Programme Evaluation​
The ACT ​SG Framework and Tools provide a programme evaluation framework and tools for the youth-at-risk sector. They were developed by CYGO and the National Council of Social Service (NCSS), with support from Sport Singapore and the National Arts Council. Having been validated and contextualised for local use, they seek to:
  1. Establish a common language and shared vision for the youth sector, through a common set of skills and outcomes for positive youth development;
  2. Guide the sector to conduct programme evaluation to generate insights for design and service delivery improvements;
  3. Provide opportunities for alignment and collaboration to facilitate collective impact achievement in the sector.
The ACT SG Framework has identifi​ed three domains (Achieving, Connecting and Thriving) and 13 skills or outcomes. There are three ACT SG Tools:

i. ACT SG Tool – measures generic youth programmes

ii. ACT SG (Sports) Tool – measures youth programmes with regular sports components

​iii. ACT SG (Arts) Tool – measures youth programmes with regular arts components

The ACT SG (Sports) and ACT SG (Arts) Tools were developed in partnership with Sport Singapore and the National Arts Council respectively. The sports and arts components could be developed using the GFL Youth-At-Risk resource guide.​
