Please can you provide me the the current percentage data of children being placed in care? For example, if children’s services are involved in 100 cases, what percentage are placed into care?
The percentage on December 31st 2018 was 20.7%.
What reward/bonus does the council receive for each child? As I am led to believe that the council receives money from central government for each child it places into care?
The Local Authority do not receive funding from Central Government on a per child placed in care basis and we therefore do not hold this information.
