Dear Cardiff Council,
FOI I sent you have asked a question FOI14036
Where I asked for the following information
.How many managers/intrum managers/operational manager/directors/assistant director and social workers. Have contacted cabinet members and MPs/AMS of parliament in cardiff.. as follows below:
if you require the cabinet ladies name/MPs and AMs please let me know as we can provide the following names by numerous sources. Including also cardiff county council ousing department-housing/lettings sections. Why have the department been contacted by cardiff social services/local authorities regarding family/parents/grandparents during family court cases which is absolutely irrelevant for any reports and family procedures. There's evidence to prove cardiff local authorities have corresponded with these people to use as evidence against families in court and it comes under public interest to know why the local authorities would be asking for such matters where MPs have written to cabinet members asking them to support families e.g. Cardiff council over crowding a family in a home they were given,some may have suffered domestic violence etc. At the same time no support what's so ever has been offered to families regarding housing with the child even though parents registered and was in priority housing band B1,and housing department attended hearings saying they weren't priority for housing showing different documents eg band E not priority for housing needs,even though the council was responsible for over crowdfunding families in the first place.also if tenants /parents waiting to be housed suffer from mental health problems,depression,anxiety issues,not having a bedroom only a floor maybe to sleep on this is being used against families in reports to the family court when children are being removed foster to adoption. Again this comes under the public interest and people would like to know the exact figures and procedures and why members are Parliament are getting involved and they shouldn't be as they deal with the political side and not family law.
While you bring up the subject of the question -MPs are supposed to be telling parents /families/grandparents/great grand-parents and advising them about the BAR Pro-Bona which isn't happening.,it states this on the pro-bona website, information has also come to light social workers contacted them 2015-2017 and shouldn't be discussing any part of the cases as judges clearly state in the family court-no information to be shared to 3rd parties regarding proceedings with any child/childrens cases..There are many reasons we could right as the housing department is linked to social services and is very strange to attend the family court proceedings,again this is being allowed to happen and the family courts do not allow witnesses to attend. This again comes under public interest and could be a conflict of interest within the law itself.

Yours faithfully,

Samantha Richards
