Information on the named person scheme .

My Crawford made this Freedom of Information request
to City of Edinburgh Council
Currently waiting for a response from City of Edinburgh Council, they must respond promptly and


no later than 14 September 2016

Dear City of Edinburgh Council,

The City of Edinburgh council have been unofficially running the
named person scheme since 2009 (confirmed by Malcolm Chisholm MSP and
the head of services at CEC). As the supreme court have ruled that the
information sharing provisions to be “not in accordance with the law”
and have now put a block on this scheme being implemented across
Scotland until the info sharing and the guidance etc are fixed i would
like to know several things .

1 : Are CEC still running the NAME PERSON scheme or has it been paused ?

2 : In the time CEC have been running this how many children and been
put on a child’s plan in the LA area ? Or had the NP involved in
their family lives ?

3 : How many kids were on the protection register before the NP was implemented ?

4 : Have parents been informed that their kids have a named person?
As this is a legal requirement ? If so i would like to see the letter
or other relevant info that’s been sent to parents .

5 : What complaints procedure does CEC have in place for parents and families ? Please provide a copy .

6 : How many complaints have been received from families about about the NP or their conduct ?

7 : What statutory footing was used for this being implemented 5 years before the act was voted on in parliament ?

Thank you

Yours faithfully,

My Crawford
