Freedom of Information Request

Digital inclusion policies relating to children in care and care-leavers

Received: 7 June 2021

I am writing to request information under the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

My questions are:

1. Does your authority have current digital inclusion policies relating to children in care and care-leavers? If so, please let me know where this information is published or send me a copy.

2. Does your authority's local offer to care-leavers or pathway planning process contain specific reference to the risk of digital exclusion among care-experienced young people? If so, please let me know where this information is published or send me a copy.

3. Has your authority been involved with initiatives to provide digital media (for example, laptops or similar digital technology, dongles or other internet alternative) to children in local authority care or care-leavers since March 2020, in order to address the impact of the pandemic on digital exclusion? If so, please let me know where this information is published or send me a copy.

If any of this information is already in the public domain, please can you direct me to it, with page references and URLs if necessary.

If this request is unclear, I would be grateful if you could contact me for further clarification.
