Children’s Safeguarding - Referrals as a percentage of the child population


At the end of 2015/16, the total percentage figure stood at 4.1%. The work of the Multi Agency Safeguarding Hub and the Early Help offer has helped to reduce the figure to 2.5% by March 2019.

The number of Referrals has shown a slight rise this year compared to last year but remains relatively low and stable.
