​​The number of looked-after children and the number of care leavers in supported or semi-supported accommodation including independent living (with or without formalised support) since 2009 for each local authority is shown in the attached table. Information on 17 to 18-year-old care leavers is provided for 2016 onwards. Information for earlier years is not held centrally. It is not possible to distinguish between independent and supported placements/accommodation and these have been combined in the table.
