Dear Wigan Metropolitan Borough Council,

Please treat the following questions as a request under the Freedom of Information Act.

1) Do you use a Resource Allocation System (RAS) to determine individual’s funding for adult social care?
2) If you don’t use a RAS do you use an alternative system? What is that system? Please provide any policies or guidelines that describe this system.
3) Please provide any policies, guidelines or any documents which describe the process for making funding decisions based on the RAS or alternative system.
4) For either a RAS or alternative system have you had to adapt the system/process for different client groups, scenarios/circumstances or for any other reason? Please provide any policies or guidelines which describe these adaptations.

Yours faithfully,
