Analysis of outcomes for children and young people 4 to 5 years after a final Care Order


The Welsh Government has published an analysis of the outcomes for children and young people four to five years after a final care order. Additionally, the study aimed to identify factors associated with positive placement outcomes.

The analysis reviews the placement journeys for children in care in Wales, by comparing the outcomes that they aspired to in their Care Plan to their journeys.

The data covers April 2012 to March 2013, including over a thousand children.

The key factor associated with positive outcomes was the quality of care in the foster, kinship or residential placement.
