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

Monitoring

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 3.2% by April this year.

Data monitoring throughout the year shows performance is continuing in line with last year demonstrating that the additional support mentioned is continuing to have a positive effect.
