From Court Proceedings to Care: Applying Outcomes of Care Proceedings for Children Study Method to Analyse North Yorkshire County Council’s CYPS data

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter in a book

Abstract

The Outcomes of Care Proceedings for Children Study established that 20% of children subject to proceedings in the (random) Study sample were not in care before, during or after proceedings, raising questions about the use of proceedings. The use of care proceedings is not recorded in the Looked after Children and Children in need databases so links between proceedings and services cannot be seen. The Outcomes Study researchers devised a simplified method to enable local authorities to analyse their social care data with legal department data to show the impact of care proceedings on care. This was successfully piloted in one LA. Findings were displayed in simple visualizations.
