Children in care in Northern Ireland 2019/20

Date published: 08 September 2021

This publication presents information on children in Northern Ireland who have been looked after continuously for 12 months or longer at 30 September each year. Information is presented on the educational achievements of these children as well as religious background, ethnicity, disability, placement, health, economic activity and criminal convictions.


This year’s publication has been updated to take account of accessibility issues; however, due to technical issues not all improvements have transposed onto the pdf version. The pdf publication will be fully updated when these have been resolved.
