In response to your recent freedom of information act request and after speaking with our Safeguarding team now that you have clarified certain information, they have informed me that Barnsley Metropolitan Borough Council doesn't hold this information and they suggested that either the courts or South Yorkshire Police will hold this information.
If you require any further assistance please do not hesitate to contact me.
Dear Barnsley 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.
