Does it stack up? Measuring performance in leaving care

Report that looks at the use of performance tables in leaving care. It provides an overview of the data published by the Department for Education (DFE) in the autumn of 2011 and summarises feedback from the sector on the strength of the data.

It is based on feedback from members of the National Leaving Care Benchmarking Forum (NLCBF), a network of around 50 local authorities and organisations, coordinated by the National Care Advisory Service (NCAS) at Catch22.
