3. What checks are made on any potential private provider prior to placing any LAC into their care?

4. Please send details of how many LAC are funded by Blackpool Council?

5. Please provide copies of all contracts, risk assessments, receipts, invoices or details of any agreements to place LAC into a residential children's home provider namely Coastal Childcare Ltd (Company No: 04528549) who was run and owned by Samantha Jane BEST who was a Secretary (82 Madison Park, Westhoughton, Bolton, Lancashire, BL5 3WA) & Richard John ALSTON who was a Director (4 Towbreck Gardens, Poulton Le Fylde, Lancashire, FY6 8FF).
