Freedom of Information Request

Specialist car seats to children with disabilities

Received: 8 June 2021

As a charity we issued over £350,000 in car seats last year but following our barrister's report we commissioned, we found that statutory services should be assessing for this equipment and at least considering provision.

I am emailing in reference to a previous FOI request we received 26th February 2019 (REF 5058528 ) and I would like to enquire about this further.

In question 1a we asked 'With the exclusion of provision made for school transport, does the local authority provide specialist car seats to children with disabilities?', to which you answered, 'No'.

This sounds like a blanket ban policy on car seat provision. As such we need to understand the circumstances in which you would provide this equipment.

I look forward to hearing from you.
