Please provide full disclosure of the following: National Wellbeing &
Engagement Forum - NWEF (Formerly NAMF) - Northumbria Police

The meeting was held
Friday 9th June 2017 at 10am, Newcastle City Centre Police Station,
Newcastle Upon Tyne.

1) A list of the delegates and other persons attending the meeting of the
National Attendance Management Forum held in June2017
2) A copy of the agenda and minutes of the meeting of the National
Attendance Management Forum held in june2017 together with a list of

We have now had the opportunity to fully consider your request and I
provide a response for your attention.

Following receipt of your request, searches were conducted with the HR
Department  of Northumbria Police. I can confirm that the information you
have requested is not held by Northumbria Police.

The meeting scheduled in June 2017 was cancelled, therefore, the
information you have requested is not available.

Due to the different methods of recording information across 43 forces, a
specific response from one constabulary should not be seen as an
indication of what information could be supplied (within cost) by another.
 Systems used for recording these figures are not generic, nor are the
procedures used locally in capturing the data.  For this reason responses
between forces may differ, and should not be used for comparative
purposes.

The information we have supplied to you is likely to contain intellectual
property rights of Northumbria Police.  Your use of the information must
be strictly in accordance with the Copyright Designs and Patents Act 1988
(as amended) or such other applicable legislation.  In particular, you
must not re-use this information for any commercial purpose.

You may be interested to know that Northumbria Police routinely publish
information via the Disclosure Log.  The aim of the Disclosure Log is to
promote openness and transparency by voluntarily placing information into
the public arena.

The Disclosure Log contains copies of some of the information that has
been disclosed by Northumbria Police in response to requests made under
the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

Whilst it is not possible to publish all responses we will endeavour to
publish those where we feel that the information disclosed is in the wider
public interest.

The Disclosure Log will be updated once responses have been sent to the
requester.
