Children and Families Across Borders

Dear Little Braxted Parish Council,

I am writing to you under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 to request the following information in relation to Looked After Children:

• The total number of Looked After Children under your local authority care, where family members outside the United Kingdom were explored between January 2015 and December 2017 inclusive.
• The number of Looked After Children under your local authority care that were subsequently placed outside the United Kingdom between January 2015 and December 2017 inclusive.
• The number and type of placement orders used for placing Looked After Children from your local authority care with family members abroad between January 2015 and December 2017 inclusive.

Please provide the information electronically.

Research conducted by Children and Families Across Borders (CFAB) in 2018 discovered considerable discrepancies in post-placement practices of UK local authorities for children in international kinship placements. Access to this information will support CFAB’s further research into the outcomes of international kinship placements and CFAB’s campaign for clear guidance on the appropriate steps to take when placing children with families abroad.

I understand that under the Act, you are required to respond to my request within 20 working days of receiving this letter. If this is request is unclear, I would be grateful if you could contact me and I will be happy to provide further clarification.

Thank you for your time and I look forward to your response.

Yours faithfully,

Andre Johnsen
