Dear Ms McNair

 

Your request for information ref. SOT84500 about care leavers placed out
of area in 2017/18 together with details about how to become a provider of
supported accommodation for the local authority

 

We have now considered your request and a copy of the information is
attached below.

 

The information supplied may be used for domestic or journalistic
purposes.  Its use for commercial gain including issuing to the public,
social media or computer blogs may be subject to the issue of a licence
under the Reuse of Public Sector Information Regulations 2015.

 

1.    I would like to know how I can become a provider.  I have my
Supported living accommodation business for 16-18 year old females in
Birmingham.  I want to know how I can register as a provider and the
process for spot purchase.

 

Response: The local authority’s uses the West Midlands-wide framework. 
The framework was established along the same lines as a Dynamic Purchasing
System, i.e. it can accept new entrants.  In the first instance you should
contact Birmingham Children’s Trust directly to discuss this.

 

2.    Breakdown of how many care leavers were placed out of the borough in
2017/2018, average weekly costs and contact details should I require
further details.

Response: We regret to advise that this information is not currently held
in a format that would enable us to provide you with a report.  To locate
the information would involve the manual review of all placements made,
which would engage section 12 of the Freedom of Information Act (cost
limit).  Although we do hold the information that you have requested, we
estimate that the aggregated cost of complying with your request would be
more than £450 (18 officer hours at £25 per hour).  This amount is called
the ‘appropriate limit’ and is specified in regulations.

 

When it would cost more than £450 to locate, retrieve and extract the
information that is requested, Section 12 of the Freedom of Information
Act allows us to refuse the request.  However, on this occasion we have
provided a response to your first question which we hope you find useful.

 

If you are unhappy with the service you have received in relation to your
request and wish to make a complaint or request a review of our decision,
you should write to: The Information Rights Manager, Information Rights
Team, Stoke-on-Trent City Council, Floor 2, Civic Centre, Glebe Street,
ST4 1HH, or email [1][Stoke on Trent City Council request email].

 

If, after contacting us, you are not content with the outcome, you may ask
the Information Commissioner for a decision.  Before doing this, please
see the following link for guidance from the Information Commissioner
relating to how to use your information rights responsibly and
effectively, to enable you to gain the best outcome from the process -
[2]http://ico.org.uk/for_the_public.

 

Generally, the Information Commissioner cannot make a decision unless you
have already used our internal review procedure. The Information
Commissioner can be contacted at: The Information Commissioner’s Office,
Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire, SK9 5AF, tel: 0303 123
1113 or you can visit their website at
