ASG Q2 2022/23 Headline Measures

In Quarter 2 2022/23 there has been an increase in the number of adoption orders and special guardianship orders granted, a decrease in the number of Agency Decision Makers decisions, Placement Orders, and children matched and placed with adoptive parents when compared to Q1 2022/23. There are less children waiting with a PO, but the proportion waiting 18+ months since entering care and 18+ months since grant of PO has increased, and children’s journeys to permanence are taking longer.
