Dear Mr. Bevan,

Further to your Freedom of Information request received 20th May, I now confirm that the Authority has not paid any monies to the registered charity "common purpose" nor have any of the staff within the Authority had any training in this respect.

If you are dissatisfied with the response to your request, under the Authority’s FOI Policy, you may appeal in writing setting out the reasons why you think the decision is erroneous, to the Authority’s Monitoring Officer at the following address:

Head of Legal & Democratic Services and Monitoring Officer
Civic Centre
Port Talbot
SA13 1PJ

In the event that you appeal and are dissatisfied with that response, you may then appeal direct to the Information Commissioner, whose address is:-

Wycliffe House
Water Lane
Yours sincerely
FOI Co-ordinator
