Response

I can confirm that the London Borough of Enfield does hold this
information.

The Council does not have an Adult Social Care (Social Services) Board. I
will therefore respond in respect of the Adult Social Care Department

•The number that has a social work qualification and are currently
registered with the HCPC

 

4 member are qualified and registered SWs.

I can confirm that the Council holds this information. This information is
exempt under section 40 (personal information) of the Freedom of
Information Act (FOIA), as the information constitutes third party data.
Section 40(2) provides that personal data about third parties is exempt
information if one of the conditions set out in section 40(3) is
satisfied. Under the FOI Act disclosure of this information would breach
the fair processing principle contained in the Data Protection Act (DPA),
where it would be unfair to that person/is confidential. This information
is restricted as it is covered by DATA Protection as the Identify of
individuals could be identified given low numbers involved.

adult social care functions and report to the Director of Social Service
(DASS) or whoever fulfills this statutory role (if defined by a different
