* Supported Living
* Residential Care
Dear Ms Lysiuk
I refer to the request, which you have made under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 for records held by this service.
Your request was received by this department on 12 March 2021.
A final decision on your request would normally be sent to you within 20 working days of receipt of your request. This means that you can expect to receive your decision by 13 April 2021.
Whilst every effort will be made to respond to your request within the time limit of 20 working days, due to the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on services across the organisation, you are unlikely to receive a full response within that time frame. Whilst it may be possible to respond to part of your request within the 20 working day timescale, you will be provided with a full response as soon as it is practicable to do so.
