Could you kindly tell me:

1. How many children became 'looked after' in your local authority in the calendar year of 2017?

2. Of the children in Q1, how many were in a group of siblings of two or more (I would like the number of children, not the number of groups)?

3. How many of the children that became 'looked after' in your local authority in 2017 were initially placed in Kinship Care/Connected Persons care?

4. How many looked after children in your local authority are currently placed following care proceedings:
a) with long term LA foster carers
b) in kinship care foster placements

5.a. How many applications to be a kinship carer did you receive in 2017 in respect of children subject to Care Proceedings?
5.b. How many of those (5.a.) applications were successful?

6. How many children in your local authority were made the subject of Special Guardianship Order following Care Proceedings in 2017?

Dear ‎Sir/Madam‏
 
Freedom of Information Act 2000
 
Unfortunately I cannot identify the information you have requested from
the details you have provided. To enable me to respond to your request,
could you please clarify, for question 6, whether you were specifically
referring to children who ceased to be looked after as a Special
Guardianship Order was granted. The 20 working day timetable for
responding to your request is halted whilst we await the further details
requested. If these are not received within 40 working days of this letter
the request will be closed.
 
I will not be able to take this matter further without this extra
information from you. Please let me know by 07/05/2018.
 
If I do not hear from you within the timeframe provided, I shall take it
that you do not wish to pursue this request and will consider the request
closed. 
 
Yours faithfully
