Proportion of Social Services uses on Direct Payments

Doug Paulley made this Freedom of Information request to Leicester City Council

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 successful.

Dear Leicester City Council,

Please can you tell me what proportion of your social care service users are on direct payments, and what proportion are on individualised budgets, and how this has changed over the last 5 years.

Please can you tell me if you are aware of any direct payments or individualised budgets recipients are in long term residential care. (I know direct payments can't be used for paying for long term residential care, but can be used for residents to pay for 121, annual holiday etc.)

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, Lynn!

Yours faithfully,

Doug Paulley
