December 2017 Performance
During this quarter the number of Looked After children per 10,000 has remained constant with small fluctuations on a monthly basis.
This measure looks at the number of children who are Looked After within Children Social Care in West Sussex. This means that some children are in foster placements and a few children are placed in residential care homes.
In order to know how well we are doing we measure ourselves against authorities in relation to the no. of children in care per 10,000 population of children.
