Freedom of Information (FOI) Requests

From 1 January 2005, the public has been able to write to any public authority designated under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 requesting any recorded information that is held by that authority.

Local Safeguarding Children Boards (LSCB) are statutory bodies in their own right and not public authorities for the purposes of the FOIA. Therefore, HSCB has no obligation to respond to approaches for information made under the Act. We make every effort to ensure comprehensive information is available on our website.

Complaints

HSCB has a role in coordinating and ensuring the effectiveness of local arrangements to safeguard and promote the welfare of children. However, it is not accountable for the operational work of its partners or any other agency working with children and young people in Hampshire. Any complaints about the operational work of such organisations should initially be directed through the relevant organisation’s complaints procedure. You should contact the organisation directly for further information on how to do this.

If you feel that HSCB is acting against the interests of children and young people and wish to make a complaint about the way we discharge our functions, you should address your concerns to the Independent Chair.

You can make your complaint in writing, by email or telephone using the contact details on this page. The Independent Chair will give due consideration to all complaints and take any remedial action necessary. We will acknowledge all complaints within 10 working days and provide a full response within 28 working days. If we are unable to respond within these timescales then we will contact you and explain why.
