Child Trust Funds

The request was successful.

Dear Welsh Government,

I am writing to you with regards to Child Trust Fund (CTF) accounts that were opened under the previous UK Government scheme between 2002 and 2011. I would appreciate it if I could receive information on the following questions:

1. How many CTF accounts were opened in Wales under the previous UK Government scheme between 2002 and 2011, and what is the total value of these accounts?

2. How many CTF accounts have remained unopened in Wales, and what is the total value of these accounts?

3. How much did the Welsh Government allocate for the Child Trust Fund Cymru scheme that ran between 2009 and 2011?

4. How much has the Welsh Government spent on advertising on promoting the existence of CTF accounts, and how to access these?

Many thanks for your help.

Yours faithfully,

Tyler Jenkins

Welsh Government

Good afternoon Mr Tyler

 

Thank you for your request which I received on 30 November 2020. You asked
for information in relation to the UK Government Child Trust Funds scheme
that was operational from 2002 to 2011 and the Welsh Government’s
[1][1]CTF Cymru scheme that was operational from 2009 to 2011.

 

Your request does not provide a sufficiently clear description of the
information for me to identify and locate the information you are seeking.
Please find attached a letter requesting additional clarification. I will
be unable to process your request any further without this clarification
so would appreciate a response from you by 4^th December.

 

Kind regards

 

Jo

Hi Jo,

Thank you for your response. Please find below the information that you have requested, which I hope is of use to you.

Q2: please confirm what you mean by unopened CTF accounts; for the period from/to.
- These are accounts that have been not been accessed or claimed. If possible, I would appreciate it if I could receive the total number of CTF accounts set-up between 2002 and 2011 that have not been accessed/claimed as of the most recent date available.

Q4: please confirm the dates from/to spent on advertising promoting the existence of CTF accounts.
- If possible, it would be great if I could receive this information from 2002. However, if this is not possible, the from 2016 will suffice.

Many Thanks.

Best Wishes,
Tyler
