Information about use of data science for special Children Act cases and domestic violence claims

Roedd y cais yn rhannol lwyddiannus.

Dear Legal Aid Agency,

In response to my earlier request FOI/200617008, the Legal Aid Agency (LAA) disclosed that it had investigated 'how we can use data to inform our approach to SCA/DV claims' (the excerpt is available here: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/6...). The document states that '[e]arly investigation has suggested there is potential for significant FTE savings, and implementation is considered viable, however significant work is still required to understand the full impact. There are a number of risk, assurance and implementation hurdles to consider that will require governance.'

I am requesting:
(1) a document summarising, evaluating or assessing work done by the LAA, including work done with the Ministry of Justice data science team, to investigate the use of data to inform the LAA's approach to special Children Act cases or domestic violence claims; and
(2) a risk assessment completed in relation to that work.

Yours faithfully,

Jack Maxwell
