Dear FOI Team,

I write to make an updated FOI request on the number of reports of sexual abuse against disabled adults received by this authority between May 2022 and June 2023.

I would like the information to be broken down into the following:

i) The number of reports of sexual abuse against disabled adults, broken down into months, and a grand total;

ii) In each case, whether the victim had a learning disability or physical disability, or both;

iii) Whether each report resulted in an investigation, and the outcome of said investigation;

Please provide the information in Excel format.

Yours faithfully,
