Tay Jiva made this Freedom of Information request to Newham Borough Council

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was refused by Newham Borough Council.

Dear Newham Borough Council,

Please could you send me a spreadsheet with all support services commissioned by or connected to your council? e.g. drugs services, mental health, accommodation etc.

The information I need is: Categories (drugs/health); name; brief description; telephone number(s); email address(es); postal address (with post code); opening hours; other criteria (e.g. age groups/ethnicity/gender); and any other information that you hold (e.g. contact person).

I can send you a pen drive or other device if you need it.

I am requesting the same from all other local authorities in England because I am putting together a website with all of this information (free to access to the public - there will not be any charge for the local authority either). I am making this request as an individual, not as a business or organisation.

Yours faithfully,

Tay Jiva

Dear Ms Jiva,

Thank you for your request for information. We need refinement from you as your request is too wide as it stand. Can you refine your request to a specific department of support services within the Council. It is likely that your request will be refused as we do not hold a centrally record of all support services and this will take time to compile.

Once you have clarified your request, we will be able to process it. However, if you do not provide the requested clarification within the specified timeframe your request will lapse and we will close the case on our system.

We look forward to hearing from you.

Yours sincerely,

Information Governance team
Newham Council
