The PACE Community is engaged in driving forward improvement for looked after children, and recently hosted a PACE Data Community Event, Milestones, Measures & Aims. How to incorporate the Data 'ask' into the system, which looked at how data can practically be captured and analysed to drive and evidence improvement in achievement of early permanence for our looked after infants, children, and young people.

The aim of the session was to look specifically at the key milestones on the journey to permanence and the data issues that these pose. We learned from examples of how local authority partnership areas have sought to address and overcome particular data issues, and shared general learning from CELCIS resulting from implementation of the PACE programme.
