Dear Mr Mortimer,
Council Ref 2013/12/026
Thank you for your Freedom of Information request regarding child abuse cases. Antrim Borough Council does not hold the information you have requested as it does not fall under the Council’s remit of responsibility (Councils in Northern Ireland have a much narrower remit than those on the mainland). You may wish to direct your enquiry to the Northern Health and Social Care Trust who may be able to assist you with your query. Their contact details are as follows:
Information Governance Office
Tel: 028 2766 1293
If I can be of further assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Dear Antrim Council
Request for information under the freedom of information act.
Please will you kindly tell me what the (a) gender and (b) familial relationship was to the child victim of offenders in substantiated child abuse cases in the area which you have a duty to protect children from abuse for the last full year which figures are available, broken down by (i) physical abuse, (ii) emotional abuse, (iii) sexual abuse and (iv) cases of neglect.
A change would be in the best interests of children.
