DataCare Country Overview - Wales

In the context of the DataCare project, key data on children in alternative care for each country in EU and the UK have been analysed to map how EU Member States and the UK currently collect data on the situation of children in alternative care.

One proxy measurement of care quality is that of placement stability, measured through the recording of the number of placement changes a child or young person experiences in each data collection year. The Welsh system also collects data on the numbers of children who experience 1, 2 or 3 or more placements in a year.
