We do not record information specifically pertaining to looked after children living in unregulated accommodation on our systems, therefore this information is not held.
Numbers of NEET 16 and 17-year-olds placed in unregulated accommodation between 1 January 2019 and 31 December 2020
46 NEET (Not in Education, Employment, or Training)
Number of young people referred to mental health services that were placed in unregulated accommodation between 1 January 2019 and 31 December 2020
7 young people were receiving an active service when placed in unregulated accommodation.

Under the Freedom of Information and Data Protection (Appropriate Limit and Fees) Regulations 2004 public authorities are not obliged to comply with requests which exceed the cost limit of £450 (equating to 18 hours of time). For this reason we believe that Section 12 of the Freedom of Information Act applies (cost of compliance exceeds the appropriate limits)
