Dear Colin Jones,

It will never be possible for local authorities to protect children from abuse until their child protection polices are evidence based but there is no legislation or regulations which specifically requires local authorities to collect & hold information on child abuse perpetrators or for them to use that information to formulate their child protection policies. Nor is this information available for Government to use that information to formulate their child protection policies.

Best regards Dave

Dear Mr Mortimer,

I am writing in response to your email of 28 December 2013 requesting information about substantiated child abuse cases. In particular, you requested that the Local Authority supplied you with the following information:-

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 record or collate the information you have requested in a way that we would be able to answer your question exactly as it is posed. However, I can provide information in relation to the number of children we have a duty to protect broken down by category and gender. All of the children were considered to be at risk as a result of abuse by a parent or as a result of a parents’ failure to protect.

There were a total of 148 of Children as at 31 December 2013 who were considered to be at risk of significant harm.
