Infants born into care in Scotland
This is an update of a previous ADR Scotland report that compared rates of children under one year of age becoming looked after by Local Authorities in Scotland and in England. The focus of this report is on children starting care under one year (infants), who make up a large proportion of children in care. As well as updating trends, we have used the longitudinal data to map the pathways of individual children who started care as infants and characterise different types of care history.
