Spend On Providing Residential Placements To Children Taken Into Care

I am writing with a request under the Freedom of Information Act. Could I ask, for the financial years 2018-19, 22-23 and 23-24: 1. How much did your local authority spend on providing residential placements to children taken into the council's care? Please provide a breakdown for each year, including a projected spend for the rest of 23-24 if it is available. 2. Of that figure, how much of the figure was spent on private-sector residential placements? Again, please provide a breakdown for each year and include a projected spend for the rest of 23-24 if it is available. 3. How many children were taken into the council's care for each financial year?
