Dear Scottish Government,

Re. recently issued guidance: A Pathway of Care for Vulnerable Families (0-3): http://www.scotland.gov.uk/Publications/...

Could you please tell me whose area of responsibility this is? It has been issued under Health and Community Care which suggests Nicola Sturgeon, however the description (Guidance to support the implementation of Getting it right for every child through continous (sic) assessment and a continuum of support.) and contents , would suggest Adam Ingram. I note there is no ministerial forward.

Yours faithfully,

Sheila Struthers

Scottish Government

Dear Ms Struthers

Thank you for your request dated 3 May 2011 under the Freedom of
Information (Scotland) Act 2002 (FOISA) for whose responsibility the
recently issued guidance 'A Pathway of Care for Vulnerable Families
(0-3)' is.

We have now completed our search for the information you request, and
can confirm this is both Adam Ingram and Shona Robison. There is no
ministerial forward in the document, however, a covering letter from
both parties went out along with the electronic distribution of the
guidance.

If you are unhappy with this response to your request, you may ask us to
carry out an internal review, by writing to Sarah Smith, Area2-A
dockside, Victoria Quay, Edinburgh EH6 6QQ. Your request should explain
why you wish a review to be carried out, and should be made within 40
working days of receipt of this letter, and we will reply within 20
working days of receipt. If you are not satisfied with the result of
the review, you then have the right to make a formal complaint to the
Scottish Information Commissioner.

The Children and Young People Bill currently going through the Scottish Parliament makes provision for universal data sharing without consent and intrusive surveillance of every child and associated adult, along with the imposition of a Named Person (other than a parent) on every child. A petition to raise awareness among the 129 MSPs (who appear to have missed the fact that children are now all deemed to be 'at risk of failing to meet state dictated outcomes') has been created here: https://www.change.org/en-GB/petitions/m...
