Objective 1 - Improving the lives of children and young people

The data within this dashboard shows how we are performing against our objective to protect children and young people from abuse and neglect, and assist them to have the best possible lives by:

  • increasing the proportion of children and young people in safe and stable homes
  • helping families earlier and with better services so their children are not taken into care
  • providing more children at risk of significant harm with a face-to-face response
  • improving the outcomes of our most vulnerable children and young people in care.
