Dear Mr Mortimer
Thank you for your email of 28 December 2013 where you requested information about child abuse cases.
I am writing to advise you that South Hams District Council has no responsibility for children so has no information to provide to you.
Devon County Council may hold the information you are seeking. If you have not already done so, then you may wish to write to them at County Hall, Topsham Road, Exeter, Devon, EX2 4QD.
Dear South Hams 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.
