It includes details on overall numbers of looked after children, the number of children adopted in the year, the number of adopters, the number and qualifications achieved by care leavers aged 16 and over, the activity of 19 year old former care leavers, the number of looked after girls who are mothers, information on the distance between home and placement and the method of participation used during the statutory reviews.
