Dear George Smith,

 

Thank you for your recent request for information which I have enclosed
below for ease of reference. Your request has been treated in accordance
with the Freedom of Information Act 2000 and/or the Environmental

social care including commissioners and brokerage teams please I would
like the following, Names, email addresses, contact numbers and job title
of all Deputy Team Managers, Team Managers & Service Managers that manage
Children & Adults Statutory Social Care Services within the Local
Authority please.

The Council does not publish direct contact details for staff below the
level of Head of Service, including email addresses and phone numbers.
Instead, it promotes the use of our website [1]www.newport.gov.uk and City
Contact Centre (telephone (01633) 656656, email at
[2][email address]).  This helps to ensure that customers are always
directed to the appropriate person and that e-mail correspondence is
routed correctly.  It also ensures that any staff moves do not affect the
public's ability to contact the Council and gain appropriate information. 

Please find below the relevant Head of Service for the service you refer
to.  In addition, further advice on contacting the Council (including an
online contact form) can be found at:

[3]http://www.newport.gov.uk/contactus
