Freedom of Information Request

Reviews, Expenditure, Carers and Respite

Received: 8 October 2019

I am requesting the following information under the Freedom of Information Act. This request should not be aggregated with other requests for section 12 purposes, given the different subject matter.
Where it is estimated that information in response to a question cannot be sourced within the section 12 cost limit due to the manner in which it is held, please mark that question as 'information not held'.
Reviews
1. For each year from 2015/16 to 2018/19, please state:
a) how many adult care clients had accessed long term support for more than 12 months by the end of each year
b) of the annual figures for question 1a, how many had a formal review/reassessment of their care and support plan that year (note that this applies to those who had received long term support for more than 12 months, as per question 1a)
c) of the annual figures for question 1b, how many saw the value of their care package rise as a result of the review
d) of the annual figures for question 1b, how many saw the value of their care package fall as a result of the review
e) of the annual figures for question 1d, how many saw the value of their care package fall by more than £1,000 as a result of the review
f) of the annual figures for question 1d, how many saw the value of their care package fall by more than £5,000 as a result of the review
Questions 1d-1f exclude cases where the care package was cut because the client had died or left the area.
If the information for questions 1c to 1f cannot be sourced within the section 12 cost limit, please provide this information for 2018/19 only. If they still cannot be sourced within the section 12 cost limit, please exclude questions 1c to 1f and process the remainder of the request.
Income
2. For each year from 2015/16 to 2018/19, please state:
a) the council's gross current expenditure on adult care services
b) the council's income from client contributions
Carers
3. For each year from 2015/16 to 2018/19, please state:
a) the number of carers supported during each year
b) the number of carers each year who received each of the following types of support from the council: direct payment only; part direct payment; council-managed personal budget; council-commissioned support only; information/advice/universal services/signposting; no direct support
c) the number of carers each year who received respite or other forms of carer support delivered to the cared-for person
If responding to question 3b would exceed the s12 cost limit, please exclude question 3b and respond to the remainder of this request.
Respite
4. How many carers are currently supported by the council?
5. How many respite care beds are commissioned by the council for use by council-supported carers (whether currently occupied or not)?
6. Please provide any data the council holds on the occupancy rate of respite care beds - this may be restricted to council-commissioned beds, or include beds that may be purchased with direct payments/personal budgets.
I would like the information sent by email. Please provide the information for questions 1-5 in the attached spreadsheet.
