This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was partially successful.

Dear Liverpool City Council,

Dear LCC

Re: Personalisation and mental capacity.
My questions relate to
personalisation as it applies to Adult Social Care.

1) Please could you provide me with copies of any policy documents
or protocols relating to making direct payments to third parties on
behalf of people who lack mental capacity.

2) Please could you also supply any policy documents or protocols,
if such exist, relating to any safeguarding issues arising from
personalisation (including checks to prevent financial abuse, and
breakdown of care contingency plans, ensuring personal assistants
payed out of DP's are CRB checked and trained)

3) Please could you provide me with yearly data on the overall
number of people (to date) who have received direct payments in
lieu of, or in addition to, community care services. If possible, I
would like this information broken down by:
a) Service user group, in particular, whether service users have
learning disabilities or dementia
b) Whether direct payments are made directly to the service user,
or to a third party who manages them on their behalf
c) How many third party payments are set up as user trusts or not.
What other methods are available for third parties to receive a
direct payment?

4) Please could you give me copies of any financial or technical
reports into the Resource Allocation System used by LCC
Council. I would particularly like to see information regarding
what questions the RAS bases its calculations on, and what those
calculations are (i.e. what are the multipliers behind the possible
answers to each question). It may be that this information is not
given in a 'report' as such, but I would be happy to receive it in
whatever means the council holds it in.

Yours faithfully,

liz jones

Dear Liverpool City Council,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of Liverpool City Council's handling of my FOI request 'Personalisation and mental capacity'.

There must be a policy or procedure for allocating money to an assessed need following a community care assessment,this is a council's responsibility.The Government has requested the system should be 'open and transparent'so service users can have 'choice and control'It cannot be lawful for a care provider to dictate to a local Authority the monetary value of a persons needs based on what they charge the council.
Could you supply the minutes of the meetings where this work is being developed or where they are published on line and the person responsible for developing the Resource allocation system in Liverpool?
Thank you for your time on this.

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address:
