CHN 9: Balance of Care for looked after children: % of 'Looked After Children' being looked after in the Community
Summary definition

Proportion (%) of all children who are in the care of their local authority (looked after children) who are being looked after in a community rather than a residential care setting.

Why do we measure this?

An understanding of the associated costs of both community and residential care costs for “Looked After Children” should be considered alongside this balance of care indicator.
