Dear Mr Coles,

 

I refer to your Freedom of Information request and I wish to sincerely
apologise for the delay which is unacceptable.  I have been in
communication with the appropriate Service to gather the information and
they have informed me that they are unable to provide you with the
information as requested from the last 6 years as this has not been
recorded and the time taken to resource would exceed the 18 hours.

 

I am therefore able to reply to your Freedom of Information in part for
the last 2 years.  I am still awaiting information in regards to Q4 and 5
from our Human Resources Department and I hope to gather this information
to you in the first instance.

 

1 The number of daily places at each day centre for older persons for each
of the last six years;

 

2. The number of users at each centre for each of the last six years -
please provide the daily average for

each centre;

 

[1]cid:image001.png@01D2516B.42B42B20

 

3. Please identify those centres which are overcapacity and which have
waiting lists and state in each

instance where that applies how many are on the waiting list for each of
those centres; None of our day centres have a waiting list.

 

4. Please provide the number of FTE staff allocated to each centre for
each of the last six years;

 

5. Please identify the number of redundancies, unfilled vacancies, or the
number of staff lost through

'natural wastage' from the staff establishments for council operated day
centres for each of the last six

years;

 

6. Please identify the source and amount of any external funding for day
centre provision and - in the

event users are charged for day centre use - the gross income derived from
those charges; Nil. Service User charges for day centre use – Nil.

 

7. Please provide:

 

7.1 a breakdown of the staffing costs for each centre for each of the last
six years;

 

[2]cid:image007.jpg@01D251FF.305569A0

 

7.2 the gross AND net operating costs for each of the day centres for each
of the last six years

 

[3]cid:image009.jpg@01D251FF.305569A0

 

I hope that the above is satisfactory and I shall revert back to you in
due course with the remainder of your Freedom of Information request. 
Once again please accept my apologies for the delay.

 

Yours sincerely,
