FOI Request Children in Care at Hotels
• Between January 2016 and July 2017, how many children in the care of Moray Council have been temporarily accommodated in a hotel, B&B or guesthouse?
• Between January 2016 and July 2017, how much money has Moray Council spent in putting children in its care up in hotels, B&Bs or guesthouses?
• Can I have a list of all the hotels, B&Bs and guesthouses which Moray Council has used as temporary accommodation for children in care between January 2016 and July 2017?
Moray Council have not placed children who are accommodated in hotels or bed and breakfast accommodation. We do not support hotels or bed and breakfast accommodation in this way. There has been occasion when a young adult aged over 16 years has had need for temporary accommodation as part of support towards independence and this has been supported through housing legislation.
