Using our data 

The data is available for you to download and is free to use in a variety of ways. All that we ask is that you use it in accordance with the Open Government Licence which is linked above. This explains what you can and cannot do with the data.

 Where possible and relevant, we have made this data available in both a ‘human-readable’ format (such as pdf) and an open, ‘machine-readable’ format that is not dependent on any specific software (such as csv or xml). 

We make data available for re-use under the Re-Use of Public Sector Information Regulations 2015. Where it cannot be used under an Open Government Licence, you can apply to re-use our data by reading our Public task statement 2015.

 Some of the key datasets are available using the links below. 

Redacted data 

Sometimes we must redact some information from data sets. This means we have had to remove some data. This could be because, for example, it is personal data such as the name of a foster carer, or someone's home address. We do this to comply with the Freedom of Information Act

Quality of data 

We take care to ensure that the data is accurate. However, you should make your own checks before relying on the data.

Data downloads 

All data downloads are CSV file formats unless stated otherwise.
