LA - Care leavers by whether their accommodation is suitable

Not the latest data
Published
Last updated

Local authority level data on care leavers, aged 17 to 21, by whether their accommodation is deemed to be suitable. Data formerly in tables F2 and F4.

Footnotes:

1. National and regional numbers have been rounded to the nearest 10. Percentages rounded to the nearest whole number. Figures exclude young people who were looked after under an agreed series of short term placements, those who have died since leaving care, those who have returned home to parents or someone with parental responsibility for a continuous period of at least 6 months and those whose care was transferred to another local authority.

2. Accommodation suitable/not suitable figures also exclude young people who have gone abroad, been deported or their residence is not known as in these cases the suitability of the accommodation will be unknown. Regulation 9(2) of the Care Leavers Regulations defines what is meant by 'Suitable accommodation'. 'Not known' includes young people whose accommodation is not known because either the local authority is not in touch, or the young person has refused contact or no longer requires services.

3. For some local authorities, such as Kent, the figures may be impacted by significant numbers of unaccompanied asylum seeking children.
