The child protection register is a confidential list of all children in the area who have been identified at a child protection conference as being at significant risk of harm.

The quarterly Child Protection statistical publication for the period 1st January – 31st March 2020 has been cancelled. This was necessary as data providers’ staff resources had to be re-structured during the Covid-19 outbreak, causing the quarterly data collections used for this publication to be temporarily put on hold. A temporary, less detailed, weekly, data collection has however been established from management information. High level data collected through this temporary data collection can be accessed here:

Once the quarterly data collection is reinstated, backdated data or estimated data will be included in future publications to cover the quarterly gaps.
