Dear Mr Harvey

 

Thank you for your request for information received on 2^nd August 2017
(and the clarification you provided in your email on 8^th August 2017), in
which you asked for the following information:

 

Information requested in your email dated 2^nd August 2017:

 

1.     The number of Adult Social Care (Social Services) Board Members.

 

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

 

3.     Whether the Director of Adult Social Services has a social work
qualification and is currently registered with the HCPC.

 

4.     Is The Principal Social Worker a board member.

 

5.     The gender split of the Adult Social Care (Social Services) Board.

 

6.     The ethnicity split as defined by UK Census categories of the Adult

Where you do not operate an adult social care board I would like for the
above questions to be applied to the senior management team that delivers
adult social care functions and report to the Director of Social Service
(DASS) or whoever fulfils this statutory role (if defined by a different
name in your authority).

 

Further in the absence of a formal Adults Social Care Board can you advise
whether the PSW forms part of the senior management team as defined above.

 

Clarification provided in your email dated 8th August 2017:

 

I am interested in this information relating to any board that the
Director of Adult Social Services holds or runs in fulfilling their
statutory duties.

 

If no such board exists please apply the clarification below and as found
in my original request.

 

Where you do not operate an adult social care board I would like for the
above questions to be applied to the senior management team that delivers

My response is as follows:

6. The ethnicity This is not Information not Information not

UK Census written down for the
categories of the purpose of the board
Adult Social Care and therefore we are
(Social Services) not able to give you
Board. a precise number in
response to this
  question because of
the very low numbers
of people involved
and therefore the
possibility that the
individuals involved
could be
identifiable. If it
were possible to
identify the
individuals involved
(from the
information that we
provide and other
information that may
be available to
people) it would be
a breach of the Data
Protection Act to
disclose the
information. Where
it would breach the
Data Protection Act
to disclose
information, that
information is
exempt from the
Freedom of
Information Act
under Section 40(2).

 

Our general approach
is not to provide a
number when that
number is 5 or less
in order to minimise
the risk of
identification. I
can therefore
confirm that it was
less than five but
cannot be more
specific.

 
Where you do not As above. As above. As above.

would like for the

be applied to the
senior management
team that delivers
