Dear Mr Mortimer,
In response to your information request, and your subsequent clarification of the information required: ‘What I mean by substantiated child abuse cases are those who have been taken through the criminal justice system & found guilty of a child abuse offence. I'm not interested in allegations of abuse only those who have been convicted of an offence as stated above’
Children’s Social Care does not record the data in the way the FOI Request is framed – CSC deals significant numbers of both allegations and ‘substantiated child abuse cases’ and it is not be possible to disaggregate these electronically.
I would suggest that as the FOI relates to criminal justice convictions you are better directing your enquiry to the Police as an agency – details below:
