Response

Following your application to the Scottish Information Commissioner in relation to your request reference 202000016737/20269 for:
The conditions of funding, which stipulate the exact criteria that is required from Woman’s Aid appertaining to each payment from the public purse.
I have given some further consideration to the information held and have determined that the letters previously released as extracts would fall within the scope of your request in full. In addition, I have also identified some additional letters which fall within the scope of your request. Having given further consideration to this information, I have determined that most of the information can now be disclosed. Copies of the relevant documents accompany this mail as individual attachments.

A small amount of the information remains exempt from disclosure under section 38(1)(b) (personal data) of FOISA. This exemption applies because it is personal data of a third party and disclosing it would contravene the data protection principles in Article 5(1) of the General Data Protection Regulation and in section 34(1) of the Data Protection Act 2018. This exemption is not subject to the ‘public interest test’, so we are not required to consider if the public interest in disclosing the information outweighs the public interest in applying the exemption.
