Number of children with Child Protection Plans (CPP) per 10,000 population aged 0-18 years
The overall aim of a Child protection Plan is to ensure the child is safe and to prevent the risk of further harm. Numbers of children with a Child Protection plan are continually monitored to ensure children have the right support to promote welfare, health and development.
The rate of Child Protection Plans per 10,000 children aged under 18 has seen a gradual decrease during the year, from 53.9 in March 2019 to 43.8 in December 2019 .
The decrease in the rate during the current year now brings us in line with national average of 43.7 but higher than statistical neighbours 38.1. (March 2019)
