Direct Payments in Domiciliary Care

The request was successful.

Dear Cheshire East Council,

I would like to make an inquiry under the Freedom of information Act regarding Direct Payments in Domiciliary Care.

Please can you tell me the following; (all questions are related to Domiciliary Care for adults 18 and over)
1. The number of individuals receiving a Direct Payment for Domiciliary Care through an Agency
2. The number of Individuals receiving a Direct Payment to employ a Personal Assistant
3. The councils spend on Domiciliary care in the last financial year
4. How much of this spend is going through a direct payment in the last financial year (approximate is fine)
5. If the price per an hour an individual is given for agency support is fixed based on council rates (i.e. a regular price would be £14) or if it is up to the individual to negotiate their own rate?
6. Does the council have a target to increase the number of individuals using a direct payment? If so what is this target?
5. Does the council have a Direct Payment Support Service?
6. Is there a manager responsible for the monitoring of Direct Payments? What is their name and title?

Yours faithfully,
Callum
