Dear Rebecca,

Thank you for your email.

The Panel is not subject to the Freedom of Information Act. During passage of the Children and Social Work Act 2017, which amended legislation to establish the Panel, it was decided that the Panel would not be subject to the Freedom of Information Act. Therefore, unfortunately we cannot provide an answer to your query.

Best Wishes,

The Child Safeguarding Practice Review Panel Secretariat
