Dear Children Commissioners,
I am writing to you under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 to request the following information in regards to Young Carers. I would like to know:
1. How many young carers are you aware of in your country?
2. Categorised by gender and age.
3. How many are caring for a parent?
4. How many are caring for a sibling?
5. How many are caring for a grandparent over the age of 70?
Please provide the above information digitally, preferably in the form of an excel spreadsheet.
If it is not possible to provide the information requested due to the information exceeding the cost of compliance limits identified in Section 12, please provide advice and assistance, under your Section 16 obligations, as to how I can refine my request to be included in the scope of the Act.
In any case, if you can identify ways that my request could be refined please provide further advice and assistance to indicate this.
I look forward to your response within 20 working days, as stipulated by the Act.
If you have any queries please don’t hesitate to contact me and I will be happy to clarify what I am asking for.
I am writing with reference to your Freedom of Information Request which
we received on Sunday 19 August 2018.
Please be advised that we do not hold the information you have requested.
However, we did publish a report in December 2016 ‘Young Carers The
support provided to Young Carers in England’, copy attached, which you
may find of interest.
With best wishes,
