Adult Social Care Spending England

We're waiting for Dan to read a recent response and update the status.

Dear Bradford City Council,

For the past seven financial years:
1. How much has the council spent on Adult Social Care (“ASC”) as a whole?
2. How much of the total ASC budget has been paid out as direct payments? What is the total number of hours that are being commissioned?
3. How much does the council spend on care providers directly commissioned by the local authority? Of this, how much is for domiciliary care support? What is the total number of hours that are being commissioned both in total and just for domiciliary care/support?
4. How much does the council spend on the administration of adult social care? Please include staffing costs e.g. management, support services, finance, secretaries, social workers or similar. It would be helpful if you could break this down by seniority and then include the number of employees in each category (i.e. social workers = X number of employees, costs X per annum).
5. Please indicate the total number of employees employed by ASC.
6. How many of your local authority’s customers are in receipt of a direct payment for Care Act services?
7. How many of your local authority’s customers are in receipt of support directly commissioned by the local authority? We are only referring to domiciliary care support.
8. As part of your duties under the Care Act, do you signpost Direct Payment users to support services such as payroll providers? |f so, which providers are signposted to?
9. Can you provide the names of the payroll providers used by your direct payment recipients, and how many direct payment recipient use each provider?
10. Does the council pay any payroll providers directly and if so, how much?
11. Please indicate the number of direct payment recipients that use a) supported bank account, b) pre-paid and c) traditional payment into client’s bank account (ie. separate account client uses only for their direct payment)?

Please ensure figures are given in a consistent format (i.e. stick to the financial year), I would like to receive the quantitative data requested (costs, number of hours, number of people etc) In accordance with ICO guidance on data sets, in a re-usable Excel format.

Yours faithfully,

Daniel

Dear Mr Reed

 

I refer to your request dated 26 September 2022, which was clarified on 27
September 2022 under the Freedom of Information Act asking to supply the
following information:

 

For the past seven financial years:

1. How much has the council spent on Adult Social Care (“ASC”) as a whole?

Response: Please see the attached document.

2. How much of the total ASC budget has been paid out as direct payments?
What is the total number of hours that are being commissioned?

Response: Please see the attached document.

3. How much does the council spend on care providers directly commissioned
by the local authority? Of this, how much is for domiciliary care support?
What is the total number of hours that are being commissioned both in
total and just for domiciliary care/support?

Response: Please see the attached document.

4. How much does the council spend on the administration of adult social
care? Please include staffing costs e.g. management, support services,
finance, secretaries, social workers or similar. It would be helpful if
you could break this down by seniority and then include the number of
employees in each category (i.e. social workers = X number of employees,
costs X per annum).

Response:  Section 12 of the Freedom of Information Act makes provision
for the Council to refuse requests for information where the cost of
dealing with them would exceed the appropriate limit, which for Local
Authorities is set at £450. This represents the estimated cost of one
person spending more than 18 hours in determining whether the Service
holds the information, locating, retrieving and extracting the
information.  Therefore, please see the attached document for a partial
response as we've not able to provide all the information requested.

5. Please indicate the total number of employees employed by ASC.

Response: Please see the attached document.

6. How many of your local authority’s customers are in receipt of a direct
payment for Care Act services?

Response: Please see the attached document.

7. How many of your local authority’s customers are in receipt of support
directly commissioned by the local authority? We are only referring to
domiciliary care support.

Response: Please see the attached document.

8. As part of your duties under the Care Act, do you signpost Direct
Payment users to support services such as payroll providers? |f so, which
providers are signposted to?

Response: Please see the attached document.

9. Can you provide the names of the payroll providers used by your direct
payment recipients, and how many direct payment recipient use each
provider?

Response: Please see the attached document.

10. Does the council pay any payroll providers directly and if so, how
much?

Response: Please see the attached document.

11. Please indicate the number of direct payment recipients that use a)
supported bank account, b) pre-paid and c) traditional payment into
client’s bank account (ie. separate account client uses only for their
direct payment)?

 

Response: Section 12 of the Freedom of Information Act makes provision
for the Council to refuse requests for information where the cost of
dealing with them would exceed the appropriate limit, which for Local
Authorities is set at £450. This represents the estimated cost of one
person spending more than 18 hours in determining whether the Service
holds the information, locating, retrieving and extracting the
information.

The information requested is not recorded in a reportable format.  It
would take approximately 3 minutes per record to manually extract the
information required.  The 2021/22 figure is 875 Direct Payment
recipients. 875 x 3 = 43.75 hours.  There are a similar number of records
for previous years. Therefore, under section 12 of the Freedom of
Information Act the Council is not obliged to comply with your request and
we will not be processing your request further.

 

In accordance with the Freedom of Information Act, if you are not
satisfied with the reply to your request you can ask for a review. A
request for a review must be submitted within 40 working days in writing
to the Corporate Information Governance Team, City of Bradford
Metropolitan District Council, City Hall, Centenary Square, Bradford, BD1
1HY or by emailing [Bradford City Council request email].

 

If you are still not satisfied with the outcome of the internal review you
have the right of appeal to the Information Commissioner who can be
contacted at:

 

Information Commissioner’s Office,

Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire, SK9 5AF.
