Number of su's recieving council funded care

Received: 4 April 2019

If unable to respond in entirety within the section 12 cost limit, exclude questions 13-14 and process the remainder.
Please note that questions 18 and 19 are under the section 16 duty to assist, rather than requests for the provision of specific information. Accordingly they should not be counted towards the section 12 cost limit; they request guidance on the way the council holds information, rather than requesting the information itself.

Strength-based assessments

16. When did the council introduce strength-based assessments for adult care?
17. Has the council used IMPOWER consultancy since 2013, and if so, regarding what?

Data recording
The following questions are submitted under the section 16 'duty to assist' - they are not requests for the provision of information as such, but requests to know whether and how the council records certain information. Thus the following questions should not be counted towards the section 12 cost limit.
18. When new clients approach the council requesting adult social care support, does the council record whether or not they are leaving hospital care? Is it possible to sort the data on the outcomes of assessments of requests for support between clients leaving hospital care and clients who are not leaving hospital care?
19. Has the council recorded, since 2010, the number of requests for adult social care support that are met with short term support to maximise independence?
