Looked After Children

Understanding the profile of Swindon’s children looked after population and forecasting future demand is integral to ensuring we provide appropriate services to meet the needs of children in care. The following analysis has been prepared to support the Swindon Sufficiency Strategy and will inform market development, the re-shaping of in-house provision and the development of effective commissioning arrangements with external market. Using the profile of needs of Swindon’s children looked after will help us to consistently get the best placement, at the right time, in the right place.
