Dear freedom of information manager,

Hello I hope you can help me with the following request for information. I would like the data for 2016/2017 and 2017/2018 if you have both, if not just 2016/2017 would be great.

i) the adult with (potential) care and support needs,
ii) carers of the adult with care and support needs
iii) young people in transition
iv) carers of young people in transition

2. If you hold data on the number of referrals made, please could you provide information on how many times a Care Act Advocate was arranged within:

i. a needs assessment (under section 9);

ii. a carer’s assessment (under section 10);

iii. the preparation of a care and support plan or support plan (under section 25);
