Data on 242 children looked after by six local authorities between 1st April
1996 and 31st March 1997, and who were still in care or accommodation
12-24 months later revealed that the largest group in this long stay sample
were babies admitted before their first birthday. An in-depth study was
conducted to explore the life pathways and decision-making process for these
very young children.
