Dear Mr Mortimer,

We write with regard to your recent enquiry for information held by the Council under the provisions of the Freedom of Information Act 2000.


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.

We publish an anonymised list of requests and responses on the Council’s website.


The DfE website CIN data includes data for Newham and all other authorities broken down

by the 4 categories requested. See the following link:
