This statistical first release (SFR) provides information about looked after children in England for the year ending 31 March 2015, including where they are placed, their legal status, numbers starting and ceasing to be looked after. It also provides figures on looked after children who were placed for adoption, the number of looked after children adopted and the average time between different stages of the adoption process. The accommodation and activity of former care leavers (now aged 19 to 21) is also included. For the first time, newly collected information is included about children looked after who were missing or away from placement without authorisation.
