This bulletin presents information derived from annual Children (Northern Ireland) Order (1995) and Delegated Statutory Functions/Corporate Parenting monitoring returns collected from Health and Social Care Trusts (HSCT) by the DHSSPSNI and the Health and Social Care Board respectively.
This new publication replaces and combines 'Children Order Statistical Tables' and 'Children Order Statistical Trends' for Northern Ireland. The data reported are the latest official statistics and trends across a broad range of children's social care activity including child protection, looked after children, children in need and children's day care. Figures are presented regionally and by HSCT.
