Question on notice 6147 asked in the other place by Hon Mia Davies MLA on 19 May 2020 requested the geographic location of the office of all regionally based employees of the Department of Communities. This includes staff that deliver all Communities services, not just those who deliver specific child protection functions. In comparison, Children in Care are managed and reported at a District level only.

(ii) This question should be referred to the Minister for Police.

(iii) One not-for-profit organisation may have contracts across multiple districts and as such cannot be split by district. This would result in inflated data being presented on the number of organisations we fund. The total not-for-profit organisations for regional family and domestic violence services have been listed instead.
