An annual report which includes information on referrals by local authority, young carers and those on Child Protection Registers.
- Local authorities received 35,300 referrals during the year. 22 per cent of referrals were for children who had previously been referred to the same local authority compared to 27 per cent in the previous year. A contributing factor to the fall in the number of referrals in 2013-14 was the exclusion of contacts which did not result in a subsequent referral. Some local authorities had incorrectly included these in previous years.
- 27,800 initial assessments were completed. 72 per cent were carried out within 7 working days of referral compared to 73 per cent in the previous year.
- Over four-fifths (81 per cent) of required core assessments were completed within 35 working days, compared to 77 per cent in 2012-13.
- Just over 3,100 children were registered on local authority Child Protection Registers (CPRs) at 31 March 2014. 32 per cent of children had been on CPRs for less than 3 months, while 17 per cent of children had been on registers for more than 12 months.
