Percentage of referrals of children leading to the provision of a social care service

Our goal

Since June 2014, all but 2 reports against this measure has been green. Performance has steadily improved over the last three years. This was expected as the Early Help offer effectively intercepts the lower need demand, leaving only those children needing a Social Care Service to reach the Referral Stage.

The excellent performance this quarter reflects the impact of Early Help in reducing the number of Referrals to Social Care, and the prompt delivery of Service to those Children most in need.





Bigger values are best
