Dear Ms Fitzsimmons

Thank you for your request for information. The response from the Shetland Islands Council is as follows:-

If a young person remains in foster care after their 18 th birthday what is the weekly foster care allowance and clothing allowance?
Currently Shetland Islands Council pay the Nationally agreed foster rate but do not pay clothing allowance.

I trust that this response meets your request. However, if you are dissatisfied with the way in which the Council has dealt with your request for information then you may ask the authority to review its actions and decisions in relation to your request, by submitting a formal appeal. The process for lodging appeals is set out in the attached leaflet.

If you require any further information, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Regards
Marion

It should be noted for anyone reading this request thread in the future that the Council was wrong to seek the requester's first name. The name requirement can be satisfied in a number of ways and the way in which the requester had initially provided their name was legally sufficient.
