Dear Andy Fisher,

It will never be possible for local authorities to protect children from abuse until their child protection polices are evidence based but there is no legislation or regulations which specifically requires local authorities to collect & hold information on child abuse perpetrators or for them to use that information to formulate their child protection policies. Nor is this information available for Government to use that information to formulate their child protection policies.

Best regards Dave

Thank you for your enquiry; this is not information held by Boston Borough Council as we are not a Children’s Services Authority. You should redirect your enquiry to Lincolnshire County Council who may be able to respond – there is a FOI link on their website at

Who do local authorities protect children from? 28th December 2013

A change would be in the best interests of children.
