This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

Lambeth Safeguarding Children Board did not have the information requested.

Dear Lambeth Safeguarding Children Board,

Please could you send me a copy of the Report of the Inquiry into the death of Doreen Aston: Lambeth, Lewsisham and Southark, Area Review Committee 1989

Yours faithfully,

Cathy Fox

DSSLSCB, Lambeth Safeguarding Children Board

Thanks you for your email to the LSCB.

Unfortunately, because this was 24 years ago, and before the LSCB existed, it does not have a copy. I have passed this onto the Council's Freedom of Information contact point to see if the Council has a copy in its archive.

Thanks

Dear Lambeth Safeguarding Children Board,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of Lambeth Safeguarding Children Board's handling of my FOI request 'Report of the Inquiry into the death of Doreen Aston'.

I have received no substantive response to my request despite a lengthy wait. Lambeth has not complied with the law. Please state why this has happened and answer my foi request

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/r...

Yours faithfully,

Cathy Fox

DSSLSCB, Lambeth Safeguarding Children Board

Thank you Cathy.

The LSCB has already responded to you, and informed you the following day that we did not have a copy of the report. The Freedom of Information Act places a duty on the LSCB to release information that it has. It clearly cannot release information it does not have.

I did pass this onto our Freedom of Information Team in the Council to check if the Council itself had a copy of the report. I have not heard back but will follow this up for you.

Thank you

Dear Deanne DSSLSCB,
My apologies. I assumed that Lambeth Safeguarding children were taking responsibility for Lambeth Council when you said you would find out from them

Yours sincerely,

Cathy Fox

DSSLSCB, Lambeth Safeguarding Children Board

Cathy

I have checked this out on line as I have never heard of the report you have asked us for and it seems to be a report produced by Lewisham, not Lambeth:

http://www.scie-socialcareonline.org.uk/...

It also appears to be related to elder abuse and not child abuse, which would not be the remit of the Children's Safeguarding Board.

I suggest that you approach the Lewisham Adult Safeguarding Board.

Thanks

Cathy,

My apologies. I have now clarified the situation. The report is indeed a child abuse review, not an adults. Please accept my apologies for misadvising you. I have tried to obtain a report from Scie for you but have not been able to, and am continuing to ask them.

It seems to have been published by Lewisham ACPC, so it may be a report that the Lewisham Safeguarding Children Board will have.

Lambeth LSCB do not have a copy.

I hope this is helpful. If I am able to obtain a copy from Scie I will contact you.

Many thanks

Cathy,

I have had a response from Scie who have identified where the report can be accessed. Please see the attached email.

I'm afraid I have done all that I can now to assist.

I hope this is of some help.
