I would be grateful for the following information:

for social care service users over the last five years?

Unfortunately we are unable to process your request without further
clarification. 
 
This is because we need further information details from you in order to
identify and locate the information. I should be grateful if you would
clarify what is meant in q.2 by consultancy support over 5 years for
social care budgets? We are not clear what this means. 
In order to assist you, we may be able to produce a report that details
what we have spent on consultants over 5 years.

If we do not receive the clarification requested we will be unable to
process your request.  If we do not hear from you by 22.02.2020, we will
take it that you do not wish to pursue this request and will consider the
request closed.

Please note that when you provide clarification the period for

you request will therefore be 20 working days after you provide
clarification.

Dear Emmanuel Tombe,

Regarding "consultancy" I mean payments made to external companies/organisations for the purpose of managing social care services (excluding provision of services to individuals) and budgets.

Yours sincerely,

Rachel O'Brien
