Children’s journeys to permanence: using data to make a difference

Thursday 8 March 2018

If you collect, analyse or use data about a looked after child's journey to a stable, permanent home, then this free, half-day workshop is for you.

Permanence data is critical in helping us look back to understand how long it takes to make a decision about a child's permanent home. it can also help us understand how improvements to the process can make a difference for children in the future too.

In this practice exchange workshop, you'll hear directly from several local authorities involved in our Permanence and Care Excellence (PACE) programme who are using data creatively and in a very practical way – supporting practitioners to manage their cases and ultimately deliver better outcomes for children going through the care system right now.

You'll also get a chance to share your own experience, and exchange ideas about where we're headed. We want to ensure we've got the right data, and that it can be used by the people who can make big differences to the lives of every looked after child or young person.

Who should attend?

  • Everyone involved in collecting, analysing and using data about looked after children
  • Social workers, practitioners and managers providing services for looked after children and their families.


The workshop is a FREE event with refreshments and light lunch provided.
