Dear Sir or Madam,
Under the freedom of information act I would like to know numerical
statistics in order by year during the period of 1998 to 2008 (or
as far back as you can go without charging me) for the following;

1) how many children were taken into local authority care on
interim care orders and emergency protection orders under the
catagory of emotional harm during the above period ? i do not wish
you to include any children for any other catagories of harm/abuse.

2)Out of these children who were taken into care for emotional harm
how many of them were specifically for domestic violence between
their parents? again i do not wish you to include children who had
violence directed at them as that would fall into a different
catagory being physical abuse.

3)Out of these children who were put into care for domestic
violence how many were returned to family or extended family ?

4)Out of these how many children were put on full care orders?

5)of the children put on full care orders how many were adopted
during these periods.

Yours faithfully,

Angela Wileman

North Down Borough Council

Dear Ms Wileman
Thank you for your Freedom Of
Information request in relation to the above received by EMail on the
October last. I have to advise you that Local Government in Northern
Ireland has very limited powers compared to England and Wales. In this
juristiction Councils do not have responsibility for Child Care/ Social
Services provision.
I suggest you contact the relevent Government agency which is the
Ireland Department Of Health And Social Services.

Kind Regards

James Kilpatrick
