Dear foihrservices,

As a Local Authority, you provide workforce returns to Skills for Care to contribute to the Adult social care workforce data set (https://www.skillsforcare.org.uk/adult-s...) - as set out and commissioned by the DHSC. The DHSC have made it clear that they do not 'hold' this data, but as the source of the data, all Local Authorities must therefore hold this data.

Please provide a copy of the returns made, as these are summary workforce statistics, there should not be an personally identifiable information in them, but I am happy to accept a redacted file, if you believe there is information which requires redaction.

Yours sincerely,

Matt Morris
