FOI Request Childrens Services In Moray
I am looking for information on any organisations that work with children in your area.
Please could you split the information in to different sectors (Early Years, Education, Fostering (IFAs), Children's Placements, Leisure, Faith Groups (incl. Madrassas / Sunday Schools) and Other provisions.
Please could you send to me the information in the form of an excel spreadsheet with the following information:
Column 1 - Sector,
Column 2 - Organisation Name
Column 3 - Contact Name
Column 4 - Address Line 1
Column 5 - Address Line 2
Column 6 - Town
Column 7 - Postcode
Column 8 - Telephone Number
Column 9 - Email address
Column 10 - Type of Service (if different to Column 1)
To provide the information in the format requested would mean the information is exempt under Section 12 of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002- Excessive cost of compliance. Moray Council utilise the services of hundreds of service providers for children within their boundaries but to collate the information and contact details in the precise way requested would take over 40 hours which would mean it would be exempt under the Act.
However, we have been able to provide some information within the time frame which is available in PDF format HERE (sent by excel directly to the requester). Redaction of the information has occurred in some instances to protect the identity of individuals; the contact names (Column 3) have been removed and also some email addresses not deemed professional email addresses ( this information is exempt under Section 38 (1)(b) of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002- Personal Information) have been redacted.
We are also able to provide web links to further information for Local Authority information including Schools and After School groups. These can be found below.

Under Section 16 of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 - Duty to be helpful, I am also advised by the Head of Children's Services that, we approach TsiMoray for this information so it may be worth the requester approaching TsiMoray themselves directly and requesting the information from them who may have it in a more 'pure' form than we hold it.
