FOI Request - Private Residential Children's Homes

Request 101000294629

Can you please provide me with a list of private residential children’s homes used by you to place children / young people you have parenting responsibility for. Please understand, I am not requesting the full addresses of these homes, and only want to know the Ofsted URN for the home, the local authority they are based in, how many children you have placed in each, the private company that runs it. NB: The Ofsted URN (or Scottish equivalent) is used by Ofsted to provide public information on each home (eg inspection reports), without identifying its address, and there is no reason why URNs cannot be provided.

The following numbered questions make my request clear:

1. How many looked after children that you have parenting responsibility for are placed in council-owned children’s homes (not secure units, foster homes, schools, or respite care)?

2. How many looked after children that you have responsibility for are placed in privately-run children’s homes (not secure units, foster homes, schools, or respite care)?

3. Provide a list of privately-run children’s homes (not secure units, foster homes, schools, or respite care) you currently place children in without giving full addresses of the homes, but instead showing only the Ofsted URN for the home, the local authority it is based in, how many children you have placed there, and the private company running it. For eg.
