* Please confirm the per annum value (£) of the Routes Home contract if the council has commissioned this

Adult safeguarding
* Please outline the number of safeguarding activities (including enquiries and concerns raised) relating to ‘modern slavery’ between 1 April 2019 – 31 March 2020
* Please breakdown this data by month, activity ‘type’ (for example, ‘risk identified and action taken’) and
the council ‘team’ responsible (for example, social services, NSNO, outreach etc)

During the period 1 April 2019 to 31 March 2020 the following forms were started:
18 Safeguarding Concerns related to Modern Slavery
10 Safeguarding Enquiries related to Modern Slavery

Of the Safeguarding Enquiries the split and risk outcomes are as follows, including null enquiries where incomplete information was provided:

Risk Reduced: 6

Risk remained: 1

Risk removed: 1

Null:  2

The totals are low and therefore to provide a further breakdown, eg by month, would risk identifying the individuals involved and disclosing their personal data.  This would be a breach of the first data protection principle and this information is therefore exempt from disclosure pursuant to s.40(2) of the Freedom of Information Act 2000.
