If you are having trouble finding out something or getting a response from your local council, MP, UK Government, UK public bodies such as local government, Parliament, schools and other authorities, you can submit a Freedom of Information request (FOI) which by law, they have to respond to or give a valid legal reason why they cannot provide the information.

WhatDoTheyKnow is run by the charity My Society and makes it as easy as possible to submit an FOI. And it’s free!
