Subject: FOI 101000438686 - Freedom of Information request regarding information concerning Offenders in Substantiated Child Abuse Cases

Dear Mr Mortimer

Further to the email dated 2nd January 2014, please see the response to your FOI request below:

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 do not hold information around the adult that would have been prosecuted as we have no operational reason to do so. So, the information as set out by your request is not held in our records. Consequently, the Council is not obliged by the Freedom of Information Act 2000 to respond to your request.

If you are not satisfied with the service you have received in relation to your request and wish to make a complaint or request a review of our decision, you should write to:
