Number of Looked After Children - update from Strategic Manager, Looked After and Permanence


Karen Robb, Strategic Manager for Looked After and Permanence, informed the Panel that data cleansing as a result of the transfer of information to the new system had resulted in difficulties in obtaining accurate figures. The approximate number of looked after children as at 27 June was 870, however, the actual figure was likely to be lower than 870.  It is expected that accurate data will be available by the end of July.  The Panel noted that the Resource Panel is carrying out some tracking work on the last ten admissions into the looked after system.
