FOI Officer, Stockport Metropolitan Borough Council

Dear Mr Carroll-Owen,

 

I am writing in response to your request for information (ref FOI 5527987
).

 

The relevant Council Service(s) has searched for the requested information
and our response is as follows.

                                  

I would like to ask the following:

 

England & Wales Question:

 

Between the dates of 1st Jan 2019 and 1st of February 2020 how many
safeguarding referrals have been received from the following organisations
"Department for Work & Pensions", "Centre for Health & Disability
Assessments also known as Maximus", "ATOS also known as Independent
Assessment Services" and "Capita"?

 

The council records safeguarding referrals by the name of the referrer and
not the agency. 

If the agency is recorded at all it will be in a free text box as a case
note.

The council is therefore unable to provide this information.

 

Scotland Question:

 

Between the dates of 1st Jan 2019 and 1st of February 2020 how many "Adult
Support & Protection" referrals have been received from the following
organisations "Department for Work & Pensions", "Centre for Health &
Disability Assessments also known as Maximus", "ATOS also known as
Independent Assessment Services" and "Capita"?
