Dear Wolverhampton City Council,
Please can you provide me with the up to date contact names and telephone numbers within the management structure for social work services , specifically children and families, adult, mental health and criminal justice services.
The full directory list of contact names including Senior Management, Service Managers, Team Managers and also the contact names of any Team Leaders would be the information that we need.
Dear Oscar Daramola,
With reference to your above question, I can confirm that City of Wolverhampton Council holds this information.
The information you have requested falls under Section 21 of The Act which relates to ‘information reasonably accessible to the applicant by other means’.
The exemption applies as the information is published and publically available to view by accessing the following link which is available in our Publication Scheme:
Section 21(1) of the Freedom of Information Act exempts disclosure of information that is reasonably accessible by other means, and the terms of the exemption mean that we do not have to consider whether or not it would be in the public interest for you to have the information.
You can find out more about Section 21 by reading the extract from the Act, available at:
We do not release any information below Heads of Service level as this is considered to be Personal Data, as defined Section 1 Data Protection Act
1998 (DPA). Public authorities are not obliged to release personal data in response to requests under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) because
Section 40 FOIA defines personal data as exempt information. In this case specifically at Section 40(2), which refers to the personal data of third
parties. We are therefore unable to release this information to you.
More Information regarding the FOI Act can be found at the ICO’s Website:
