NACCC began to collect statistics from accredited centres on a quarterly basis in 2014.  This process was refined during the period 2014-2016.  Information is collected using an online method which allows us to store and analyse information from the centres that submit their stats.  We are able to provide information for the Ministry of Justice, Cafcass and media requests. This information is also used by centres to support their own funding bids.

Submission of quarterly statistics is an accreditation requirement and failure to submit will affect a centre’s re-accreditation.
