Dear Holmes, Tony,

Thank you for this response. However you have provided information on fostering fees, rather than allowances for the child. Therefore please could you provide the information I requested on foster care allowances, by age band (e.g. last year York reported paying £128.03 per week for 0-4 age group, £141.05 for 5-10, etc).

Thank you.

Yours sincerely,

Robert Cann

Dear Mr Cann,
 
Freedom of Information – FOIA Review.
 
Please see below the response to your request for a FOIA review under the
Freedom of Information Act received on 20^th July 2018.
 
Your Review Request.
We have provided information on fostering fees, rather than allowances for
the child. Therefore, you are requesting the council to provide the
information I requested on foster care allowances, by age band (e.g. last
year York reported paying £128.03 per week for 0-4 age group, £141.05 for
5-10, etc).
 
Our Review.
I can see from our records that a response has gone back to you on the
5^th June 2018. You have been advised that we don’t have different bands
for payments, and have been provided with the basic allowances.
 
I have reached out to the service area and they have advised me that the
original response is not correct, and they have provided, and that they
have provided you with the carer grade fees. They have provided me with
the below table, in response to your original request. See below.
 

Age Range 2018/19 Weekly Fee
0-4 £130.06
5-10 £143.01
11-15 £164.01
16-17 £191.03

 
Review Outcome.
As service has advised that they have provided you with the incorrect
details, and I have now passed the correct information to you with in this
review response, I will be upholding your review.  Please except me
sincere apologise for the confusion. As you have now received the correct
details, I will be concluding my investigation into this review.
 
If you are dissatisfied with our response you have the right to ask for a
review of how your enquiry was handled and responded to. This can be done
by contacting us through [1][City of York Council request email] stating your reason(s) why you
are dissatisfied. If you remain dissatisfied after receiving the review
response you
can contact the Information Commissioner, contact details below:
