Dear Essex County Council,

I hope this request finds you well. All questions are related to adults only (18+) with disabilities, learning disabilities, autism and/or acquired brain injuries as well as both domiciliary and residential care.

1. How many adults with learning disabilities living in residential care want to leave residential care?
2. How many adults with learning disabilities does the Council support out of county?
3. Who are your Direct Payment broker(s) and what are their contact details?
4. What Existing Provider Forums does the Council use to communicate with providers?
5. What are your current gaps in your service provision to this group of people that you are unable to fill?
6. How do you commission accommodation for adults with disabilities?

I look forward to your response.

Yours faithfully,

Alex Hansen
