Value of Care Packages

Roedd y cais yn rhannol lwyddiannus.

Dear Birmingham City Council,

My apologies for sending you this rather complex FOIA request. I do
appreciate the time you give to helping to provide this
information. Please could you provide me with the following data
of none residential care packages:

1) For adult social care, for the last five years, the value of all
packages of care worth over £750 per week (ie. a list of the
values).

2) If it is possible to do so within the resource limit, please
break these down to show which are for people aged between 18-65
and which are for over 65s.

If it is possible to do so within the resource limit, please break
these down to show which packages of care were newly commissioned
that year.

If it is possible to do so within the resource limit, please
indicate whether the value of these packages of care includes any
contribution from the Independent Living Fund (ILF) and how much
this contribution is worth.

If you only know the LA contribution for part 1 of this request,
and it is possible that there is an additional ILF contribution
which the LA does not record, please could you state this in your
response.

If it is possible to do so within the resource limit, please
indicate whether the value of these packages of care includes a
contribution from continuing care in addition to local authority
funding (ie. how much for each package of care is CC funding and
how much is LA funded).If you only know the LA contribution for
part 1 of this request, and it is possible that there is an
additional continuing care contribution which the LA does not
record, please could you state this in your response.

So, for example, your response might say that you have 3 packages
of care worth over £750 per week (say, a=£950, b=£1100 and
c=£1300).Some of those might include a contribution from the ILF
(perhaps a is funded £500 by the local authority and £450 by the
ILF).Some of those might also include a contribution from
continuing care (perhaps c is funded £600 by the local authority,
£500 by continuing care and £200 from ILF).

If you are unable to answer all these questions because of resource
limitations, please answer them in the order given in the request

Yours faithfully,

Dave Brady
