FOI Request - Successful Adoption Rates
This is a request under the Freedom of Information Act 2000. I would like to request the following information in an electronic format:
• A month-to-month breakdown of the number of successful adoptions that have happened through your council starting from January 2018- April 2021? By successful adoptions, I mean prospective adoptive parent(s) becoming the legal guardian of a child.
• Could you also provide an ethnic breakdown of the successfully adopted children, by month, starting from January 2018- April 2021?
Due to the low numbers involved, the requested breakdown could lead to the identification of individuals. This information is therefore exempt under section 25 of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002. 'personal information'.
In order to be helpful we can however provide the total number of adoptions broken down by year:
2018 - 8
2019 - 6
2020 - 6
2021 - 0
