This is the 2018 Stability Index, an annual measure of the stability of the lives of children in care. The Index was launched by the Children’s Commissioner in 2017 to report on the stability that these children experience. It aims to shed 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.
