Dear Mr Mortimer
I refer to your Freedom of Information request regarding child abuse. Please note that this does not fall within the remit of district councils in Northern Ireland. You should contact the Department of Health Social Services & Public Safety (http://www.dhsspsni.gov.uk) or specifically for this area the Southern Health & Social Care Trust (http://www.southerntrust.hscni.net)
Dear Craigavon 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.
