The Stability Index is an annual measure of the stability of the lives of children in care. It was first launched by the Children’s Commissioner in 2017 to shine a light on the issue of stability, provide data that allows stability to be monitored over time, and ultimately drive improvements in stability for children in care.

This report provides the national overview of the latest data analysis (relating to 2017/18) and findings. An accompanying technical report provides the full detail and methodology.
