【Abstract】： This study aims to understand Taichung citizens’ perception of child and youth welfare policy and resources, and their levels of satisfaction, from the service users’ perspectives. It also proposes to analyze the welfare need of child and youth by locality (namely the City, Mountain, Sea and the Tuen areas of the great Taichung) and family types. This study uses focus groups and survey as the main data collecting methods. Three focus groups were held, including one expert group, one youth group, and one primary caregivers’ group.
