Tay Jiva made this Freedom of Information request to Wirral Metropolitan Borough Council

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

We're waiting for Tay Jiva to read a recent response and update the status.

Dear Wirral Metropolitan 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 InfoMgr, FinDMT,

I think there has been a misunderstanding in the informaiton requested. I suspect that there may be an overlap of services offered to the public and contracts tendered; however, the links offered are not what I was asking for.

Do you have a database of support services (such as health/accommodation/training etc.) providers? For example, if I do a search on the Wirral website for ‘drugs’, the link for ‘Change, Grow, Live’ comes up. I would like a list in CSV format of all such support services, listing the name, brief summary, email address, telephone number and web address.

Yours sincerely,

Tay Jiva

Dear Tay Jiva

 

Thank you for your email of 14 May 2018 in which you asked the following:

 

“Do you have a database of support services (such as
health/accommodation/training etc.) providers? For example, if I do a
search on the Wirral website for ‘drugs’, the link for ‘Change, Grow,
Live’ comes up. I would like a list in CSV format of all such support
services, listing the name, brief summary, email address, telephone number
and web address.”

 

Unfortunately Wirral Council does not have a directory of support services
as requested.  Compliance with your request would require significant use
of resources to collate and maintain such a database and to do so would
incur significant cost to the Authority and would exceed the appropriate
limit of 18.5 hours currently allowed under Section 12 of the Freedom of
Information Act 2000.

 

However, in line with our Section 16 duty to advise and assist, you can
follow the links below where you will find a portal listing a range of
support services that are available in Wirral:

You have the right under Section 17 of the Freedom of Information Act 2000
to ask for an internal review of the Council’s response to your request.
Please direct any request for an internal review to
[3][Wirral Borough Council request email] and your request will be allocated to
another officer for review.

 

If you are dissatisfied with the outcome of an internal review you also
have the right to complain to the information Commissioner, who can be
contacted at [4]https://ico.org.uk/global/contact-us/

 

Yours sincerely
