Mr McKay,

Although we are able to provide most recent gradings for Care Homes for
Children & Young People, there is not a sub-type for Support Services
(Care at Home) which defines whether or not the service provides for
children.

As such could you please clarify exactly what information you are looking
for?

Dear freedom of info,

Many thanks for your response. I am interested in services for young people, these may be for example through-care services or services that are registered as housing support services.

I require this information for research that I am undertaking in to the needs of young adults leaving care.

Yours sincerely,

Mr.E McKay

Homes for Children & Young People, Support Services (Care at Home) and

The WhatDoTheyKnow administrators have censored one of the phone numbers in the response, so it appears as "xxxxxxxxxxxx".

On 17th June 2011, Anderida Adolescent Care contacted us with a concern that one of the documents in this request was appearing in Google results for a phone number, making it possible to tie the phone number to the physical address of their home.

They claimed that this raised a child protection issue in that some people had the phone number of an individual at the home but should not have the address.

The address, and the possibility of deducing the address from the phone number or other information such as Anderida's name, was also available from a number of other public sources including the website of SCSWIS, the successor to the Scottish Care Commmission (http://www.scswis.com/index.php?option=c...).

We chose to hide the phone number as an interim measure to give Anderida time to have it removed from these other sources.

This has not happened, and we have also received no response from a direct query to SCSWIS on this matter. The full details of the home are still published on their website. We have therefore now replaced the information.
