We aim to ensure that Family Information Directory is available 24 hours a day 7 days a week for your convenience. However, we cannot guarantee 100% uptime of the website and its additional online services due to essential maintenance or technical problems. We therefore endeavour to make sure that a minimum of 98.2% uptime is achieved as recommended to local authorities by Government.
Every attempt is made to keep the information on Family Information Directory up to date, accurate and reliable through quality information procedures. However, we do not guarantee the accuracy or completeness of any information, nor accept liability for any errors or omissions in the information. The information is for guidance and should therefore not be relied upon as a substitute for formal advice from the originating bodies.
3. Changes to the website and its content

While every care is taken in the compilation of this website information, Borough of Poole, its employees, contractors, partners and agents will not be held responsible for any loss, damage, or inconvenience caused as a result of any inaccuracy or error within these pages.
4. Translation Service
Using Plain English Advice from the Dorset Racial Equality Council (2003) suggests that effective translation and access to information can come from the use of plain language, rather than translating our information to other languages. To help your understanding of the website information that we provide, in line with guidance from Dorset Racial Equality Council we aim to make sure that Family Information Directory is written in Plain English in the first instance.
Using the Translation Service Family Information Directory currently uses the free Translation Service provided by Google and AltaVista/Systran. There are some restrictions on the size of file that can be submitted and the translation is usually understandable but not perfect. This service is provided to translate website information only and cannot currently be used with our online services. However, we recommend that you always try to find a friend or relative who can speak or read English to help with your enquiry. It will help us and you deal with your needs more effectively.
