Adult Social Care Spending England

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

Dear Calderdale Metropolitan Borough 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

Good afternoon Daniel,

Would you please be able to provide your Surname so I can log your request and start to collect the information you have requested.

What are the legal requirements for a request?
To be valid under the Act, the request must:

be in writing. This could be a letter or email. Requests can also be made via the web, or even on social networking sites such as Facebook or Twitter if your public authority uses these;
include the requester’s real name. The Act treats all requesters alike, so you should not normally seek to verify the requester’s identity. However, you may decide to check their identity if it is clear they are using a pseudonym or if there are legitimate grounds for refusing their request and you suspect they are trying to avoid this happening, for example because their request is vexatious or repeated. Remember that a request can be made in the name of an organisation, or by one person on behalf of another, such as a solicitor on behalf of a client;

Kind regards
