The latest national information on the number of care leavers aged 19 to 21 can be found in table F1 of the statistical release ‘Children looked-after in England including adoption: 2017 to 2018’: https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/children-looked-after-in-england-including-adoption-2017-to-2018. These figures are also disaggregated at local authority level for 2018 in the underlying data tables that accompany this statistical release.

The department does not hold information on care leavers aged 22 to 25.
