Coronavirus (COVID-19)

How we are working to keep our FOI Requests running during COVID-19

Vulnerability Support Hub (669A/20)

Request

I’d like to request the following under the FOIA act, in relation to the Central vulnerability support hub hosted by Counter Terrorism Policing West Midlands (CTPWM):

1) How many individuals has each hub assessed in each of the years since they were launched (April 2016)? Please provide this information in an Excel spreadsheet broken down by hub and year. In one column please put the hubs and in one row, the years. Please provide figures as totals.

2) How many individuals were referred for mental health treatment by each hub since they were launched (April 2016)? Please provide this information in an Excel spreadsheet broken down by hub and year. In one column please put the hubs and in one row, the years. Please provide figures as totals.

Response

Please find attached (669A_20_attachment).

Every effort is made to ensure that the figures presented are accurate and complete. However, it is important to note that these data have been extracted from a number of data sources used by forces for police purposes. The detail collected to respond specifically to your request is subject to the inaccuracies inherent in any large scale recording system. As a consequence, care should be taken to ensure data collection processes and their inevitable limitations are taken into account when interpreting those data.

The figures provided therefore are our best interpretation of relevance of data to your request, but you should be aware that the collation of figures for ad hoc requests may have limitations and this should be taken into account when those data are used.

If you decide to write an article / use the enclosed data we would ask you to take into consideration the factors highlighted in this document so as to not mislead members of the public or official bodies, or misrepresent the relevance of the whole or any part of this disclosed material.
