Children Looked After

The number of Children looked after as at 31 March in the financial year, for Lincolnshire and Districts.

This dataset shows:

  • Numbers of Children in Need Cases Open
  • Children looked after (age Under 18) by Home Address
  • Children looked after (age Under 18) by Placement Address

The term 'looked after' includes all children being looked after by a local authority; those subject to a care order under section 31 of the Children Act 1989; and those looked after on a voluntary basis with the agreement of their parents under section 20 of that Act.

Numbers below 5 have been removed, and where needed one or more additional counts of 5 or greater have also been removed. This means some records may be omitted and figures might not tally precisely.

The data is updated annually. Data source: Lincolnshire County Council Childrens Services. For any enquiries about this publication contact
