Dear London Borough of Barking and Dagenham,

Thank you for the information thus far.

I wonder if I could ask you to drill a bit deeper in to the structures of the directory to include the Teams and their manager's names for any service dedicated to the provision of Social Care to Children or Adults.
For example, another council provided us information as follows:

ADULT SOCIAL CARE 
 Enablement/IMC & Day Team 
 Learning Disabilities & Mental Health Registered Services Team 
 Learning Disabilities & Mental Health Employment & Life Opportunities 
Team 
 Residential Services Team 
 Adult Learning Disability Team 
 Emergency Duty Team 
 Occupational Therapy Team 
 Operations Assessment North Team 
 Operations Assessment South Team

CHILDREN’S SERVICES 
Director of Children’s Services 
Three Sub-Directorates 
 Operations 
 School Improvement 
 Commissioning and Partnerships 
Teams under operations include: 
Corporation Parenting Service 
 Adoption Team 
 Fostering Team 
 Resource and Placement Team 
 Court and Permanency – split into three teams – Team 1, Team 2, Team 
3 (Long-term looked after children) 
 Leaving care – split into two teams - Team 1 and Team 2

Please could you provide me with a full list of these teams and their managers?

Yours sincerely,

Oscar Daramola
