The available data relates to the number of assessments carried out, in England, by children’s social care where ‘alcohol abuse’ has been identified as being a risk factor. This information was collected for the first time in 2014, covering April 2013 to March 2014.

The data is available in the statistical first release ‘Characteristics of children in need in England, 2013 to 2014’ and is available in table A6 in the National and local authority tables at: www.gov.uk/government/statistics/characteristics-of-children-in-need-2013-to-2014
