Fostering in England 1 April 2015 to 31 March 2016

Data covers the period 1 April 2015 to 31 March 2016. The Fostering in England 1 April 2015 to 31 March 2016 statistics, due for release in December 2016, have been delayed and will be published in February 2017. This is due to data collection and quality assurance issues, following the introduction of a new format data collection template, which has led to more time being required to ensure the data are ready for publication.
