Dear Foi Enquiries,

Thanks for your response this far. I appreciate that the information in regards to the team structure itself is on the main website, so I accept that as an exclusion. What is not on website, however, is the information in relation to part 2 of my questions.

In your response you have chosen to refuse the request based on one section of the initial message, however you have opted to discard the full request despite other information requested outside the structure alone.

Yours sincerely,

Chris Tervit

Dear Foi Enquiries,

I had asked for (A) a breakdown of the Social Work teams within each discipline in Social Work services including addresses, contact numbers etc, and (B) who the team managers are that look after each individual team within Social Work Services within each discipline and contact email addresses and locations for each.

Part A was refused on the basis this is available online, however this would not be a response to part B. Please refer back to my original post in the thread.

Yours sincerely,

Dear Mr Tervit,

 

Thank you for your response.

 

In order to help us carry on an investigation and find out the missing
pieces of information which should be provided to you, please see below
copies of your questions and our response in detail:

 

1. Please can you provide the name, contact and address details for each
social work service team and department in Aberdeen City Council broken
down by Adult Services, Children and Families Services, and Criminal
Justice.

 

The link to a similar previous response (hard copy attached as well) was
provided to you. As you have already noted, the details for each social
work service team broken down by Adult Social Work, Criminal Justice
(which is a sub-section of Adult Social Work Team) and Integrated Children
and Families Services were all provided including their location and phone
number.

Could you please advise what is missing ?

 

2. Please can you provide the social work managers names and phone numbers
and email addresses for the individual teams from question 1 at Aberdeen
City Council.

 

Again, as you can see from the attached response, the name of managers for
each team, their location and their phone numbers were all provided. We
can provide their e-mail addresses as well.

 

In your e-mail of 16 November 2018, you also mentioned: I appreciate that
the information in regards to the team structure itself is on the main
website, so I accept that as an exclusion. What is not on website,
however, is the information in relation to part 2 of my questions.

As you can see from the attached response, the name of the managers, their
location and phone numbers were all provided. Could you please advise what
information in relation to part 2 of your question was not provided ?

 

Also in your e-mail of 20 November 2018, you highlighted: (A) a breakdown
of the Social Work teams within each discipline in Social Work services
including addresses, contact numbers etc, and (B) who the team managers
are that look after each individual team within Social Work Services
within each discipline and contact email addresses and locations for each.
Part A was refused on the basis this is available online, however this
would not be a response to part B. Please refer back to my original post
in the thread.

As explained above, the response to Part B of your request were all
provided except the e-mail addresses. Could you please clarify if there is
anything else that was not provided in our initial response ?

 

Hope this clarifies and please let us know in case of any problems.

 

Kind regards
