Freedom of Information Requests, Doncaster Borough Council

 

Dear Natalia

Thank you for your Freedom of Information request dated 12^th March 2021
for information about prediction of future placements.

Please find below/attached Doncaster Council’s responses to the questions
you have raised. 

 

Question:

I am looking for information as to the authority’s prediction of the
number of required placements over next 12 months, for adults with LD, and
ASD in the following service types:

* Supported Living

* Residential Care

 

Response: 

“Supported Living”

 

An independent Housing Needs Assessment has been commissioned by the South
Yorkshire and Bassetlaw Integrated Care System (ICS) which forecasts a
gross requirement of 47 supported living placements for 2021/2022 in
Doncaster for people with a learning disability and/or autism. 21 of the
47 forecasted placements would be satisfied by relets of existing
supported living provision.

 

“Residential Care”

 

We are unable to provide a prediction for these client groups.

 

I hope that this information is useful to you.
