Dear Mr Cann
Please find below the response provided by Slough Childrens Service Trust
who run children services in Slough.
Question 1 Your total number of registered foster carers
Question 2 The number of your registered foster carers who are non-UK EU
Answer Less than 5
Question 3 The number of your currently fostered children who are non-UK
Answer The requested information has tried to be extracted from the
system. On reviewing the extracted data there are a large
number of records which do not hold the requested data.
We are therefore unable to answer this question.
Question 4 The number of your UK national foster carers who foster outside
of the UK, but within the EU
