Dear Brent Borough 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)

How many packages do you commission on a monthly basis?

Do you have a framework in place? If yes:
What type of framework is it?
When does it expire?

If you do have a framework in place, what % of care do you have to spot purchase outside of the framework?

How do you commission care packages currently?
Through an purpose built I.T system – if yes, which one
Through other IT system – if yes, which one
Via Telephone
Via Email

How many providers are do you have registered, and how many are you actively using?

What is the average hourly price you pay for Dom care?

Many thanks in advance.

Yours faithfully,

Callum
