Dear Lynda Fay,

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

Dear Mr Mortimer

Freedom of Information Request

Your request has been considered under the provisions of the Freedom of Information Act. Specifically, you have requested the following information:

“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”.

Clarification relating to your enquiry was sought by Mr. Swann, Head of Safeguarding, Children Social Care who advised that the information you seek regarding prosecutions is not held by the council.   The criminal justice service may have information where cases resulted in a criminal investigation or prosecution and you will need to contact the Ministry of Justice directly.   You may also wish to consider lodging your enquiry with the police who are responsible for prosecutions

Yours sincerely 

Lynda Fay

Mr Mortimer

Here in social care we would not keep this data in any reportable form. I’ll need to go back to the FOI team they may be able to contact the courts.
