Number of Looked After Children - Update by Head of Children's Social Care

Minutes:

The Head of Children’s Social Care informed the Panel that the number of looked after children stood at 901 and explained that there had been a steady increase over the past 12 months which reflected the national trend.  The number of looked after children remained less than the north east average and Durham experienced a slower rate of increase than other areas of the north east.

 

The Head of Children’s Social Care read out a letter from looked after children, thanking the Panel for their contributions to the Christmas party.
