Your request has been given the unique access to information code above. Please quote this reference on any correspondence relating to this request.

In response to your request regarding child abuse victims the Council responds a s follows:

The Council can only release information to you, which it holds. Unfortunately in this instance the Council does not provide the Child Care service in Northampton so does not hold any information relating to your request.

In order to assist you with your enquiries the Council has identified Northamptonshire County Council (NCC) as the provider of this service and therefore the most likely holder of the information you have requested. Detailed below are their contact details.


County Hall




If you consider the Council has not provided the information you have requested you have the right to challenge that decision in respect of your information request within 6 months.
