Children and young people's services rates.

Response to this request is long overdue. By law, under all circumstances, West Suffolk Council should have responded by now (details). You can complain by requesting an internal review.

Charlotte Cockerill

Dear West Suffolk Council,

I'd like to request the adoption rates within the borough over the last year. I'd like to know what category are most parents having their children removed from their care under. And what are the rates of adoption. Also why are most the children coming from families being split up instead of remaining children together.

After all the moto is working to keep families together isn't it.
Yours faithfully,

Charlotte cockerill
