Dear Mr Barnes

 

Thank you for your request for information dated 27/9/19 concerning
Costings of Mother and Baby Placements

 

This is to inform you that your request has been considered and I can
provide the following response:

 

Request/Response:

Please could you provide me with a breakdown in costings of what you would
expect to pay an Independent Fostering Agency for:

 

A) 12 week PAMS assessment

B) 12 week family accommodation (cost for mother and baby) per week

C) Additional costing of additional child (for 12 weeks) per week

D) Additional cost if father is involved in assessment (12 weeks) per week

E) Supervised contact (cost per hour)

 

For questions A – E above, Powys County Council have not used an
Independent Fostering Agency for this service, therefore Section 1 of the
Freedom of Information Act is engaged.

 

Under Section 1 of the Freedom of Information Act a public authority is
required to inform you

1 (a) whether the information requested is held by the public authority,
and

(b) to have that information communicated if that is the case.

In this case the information requested is not held.

 

F) Transportation (time and mileage)

The contract with the Independent Fostering Agency includes a set number
of miles within the core price for transportation.  If the transportation
exceeds the set number of miles, Powys County Council have on occasions
agreed to pay 45p per mile over and above the core price, but this is not
usual practice.

 

We believe that this request is now complete and shall be closed
immediately. Should any further information be requested regarding this
topic, a separate request will need to be submitted.

 

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your interest in
Powys County Council.

 

Yours sincerely,

 

Information Compliance Team
