Dear Darlington Borough Council,
Could you please help me out with the following FOI request?
1. In your local authority, on the latest date for which figures were available, can you provide the total number of people in your local authority area you have assessed as having to pay for any aspect of their social care, including but not limited to:
(a) home care
(b) day care
(c) community alarms
(d) other non-residential community care services?
2. How people are currently in arrears of payment of their social care charges (by this I mean having missed at least one payment)?
3. How many people currently have debt management procedures commenced against them by your authority for non-payment of social care charges (by this I mean any escalation in debt recovery, e.g. automated reminders, letter before action and referral to debt collection agency)?
4. How many people have had court proceedings begun against them relating to non payment of social care changes in 2017/18 and 2018/19?
I would like to receive the information electronically. Please contact me if you need any clarification.
