Dear Customer Care Centre,

Hi there,

Please find below the clarifications for the above FOI requests.

For all questions, please use the time frame of the last 3 financial years.

Question 2 seems as if there is a repeat of the question - apologies. Please also seek the information for an average per young person looked after and accommodated in residential care.

For questions 2 to 4, we are looking for the residential settings provided by Glasgow City Council, as well as those purchased by Glasgow City Council. But, if there are settings in which these settings are run by a third-party provider, we would like to know this information also.

Kind Regards,
Tiegan Batchelor
