Dear Ms. Dawson

Request for Information


I refer again to your e-mail of 28 October 2021 seeking structure of the
organisation charts for social services.


Having investigated, please find attached structure charts for Children's
and Adult Social Services.  The documents have been adjusted to exclude
anything which constitutes personal data in respect of which disclosure
would contravene the data protection principles and that this constitutes
a ground of absolute exemption in terms of Section 38(1)(b) of the Freedom
of Information (Scotland) Act 2002.  The details edited from the documents
which are effectively being released into the public domain for all to
access are names, e‑mail addresses and telephone numbers of non senior
staff.  Please note that the senior members of staff in relation to the
Adult Health and Social Care are as follows:-


Chief Officer – Ross McGuffie


Head of Adult SWS – Diane Fraser


Chief Social Work Officer (Head of Children, Families and Justice) –
Alison Gordon


Head of Planning, Performance and Assurance – Morag Dendy


I can advise that North Lanarkshire Council, having regard to the
provisions of Section 21 of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act
2002, has established a procedure whereby any person who has requested
information and is in any way dissatisfied with the decision on that
request, can within forty working days require a review of that decision
by writing to the Head of Legal and Democratic Solutions, Civic Centre,
Windmillhill Street, Motherwell ML1 1AB.  Accordingly, if you are
dissatisfied with this decision and seek such review please write to the
Head of Legal and Democratic Solutions.


I would advise, also, that in terms of Section 47 of the Act a person who
is dissatisfied with a notice given by the local authority under Section
21 of the Act - ie. a notice following a review of a decision by a local
authority, or by the failure of a local authority to give such a notice -
may make application to the Scottish Information Commissioner for a
decision as to whether, in any respect specified in that application, the
request for information to which the requirement relates has been dealt
with in accordance with the Act.  Such an application must be made within
six months of the review decision and be in writing or in another form
which, by reason of it having some permanency is capable of being used for
subsequent reference. The application must state the name of the
applicant, and provide an address for correspondence. The application must
also specify the request for information to which the requirement for
review relates, the matter which gave rise to the applicant’s
dissatisfaction with the original decision of the local authority and the
matter which gives rise to the applicant’s dissatisfaction with the
decision on review by the local authority or the failure of the local
authority to issue such a decision.  The Scottish Information Commissioner
can be contacted as follows:-


Scottish Information Commissioner

Kinburn Castle

Doubledykes Road

St. Andrews

KY16  9DS

email: [1][email address]


Appeals to the Scottish Information Commissioner can also be made online

I hope this information is sufficient for your purpose.  If, however, you
require further information – or I can assist in any other way – please
let me know.


Yours sincerely
