Dear Ms Mufumba,

Please will you kindly tell me what information the London child protection procedures legally require Ealing Council to collect & hold on child abuse perpetrators?

Best regards Dave

Dear Mr Mortimer,

“The local criteria for the determination of data and information to be collected reflects the policies and procedures in place for child protection work , including the need to capture defined data sets required for local and statutory reporting, and the collection of case management information required to inform decision making and the management of the case.

Ealing Council operates The Framework for the Assessment of Children in Need and their Families (DoH et al, 2000) (the Assessment Framework) which provides a systematic multi-agency approach to analyse and record what is happening to a child within their family and the wider context of the community in which they live.

The council has adopted and operates the London Child Protection Procedures (available to download from : http://www.londonscb.gov.uk/procedures/)”

I hope the above answers your request in full.

Regards,

Ms Mufumba
