Dear Westminster City Council,

We are doing some research into the value of council / authority Special Education Needs & Disability and Adult Social Care transport contracts operated by private hire operators. To this end, could we please request your assistance in obtaining the information below, for your council / authority, under the Freedom of Information Act 2000:

Data request:

For the last 3 financial years (by year), and latest financial year (estimated):

1. Spend on Special Education Needs & Disability [SEND] transport i.e. taking children with SEND to and from school
2. Number of SEND passengers transported
3. Value of all council / authority SEND transport contracts awarded to taxi operators (PHV) (excluding coach hire)

4. Spend on Adult Social Care [ASC] transport i.e. taking elderly passengers to and from day centres
5. Number of ASC passengers transported
6. Value of all council / authority ASC transport contracts awarded to taxi operators (PHV) or taxi operators (excluding coach hire)

If actual figures aren’t available, is it possible to provide estimates instead? If yes, we would be grateful if you could indicate which figures are estimated.

By ‘contract awarded’ we mean in all contracts regardless of contracting approach e.g. open tender, framework, dps, or other.

Format: Please send through data in whichever format is easiest for you.

Clarification: If the request is unclear, please accept our apologies and let us know what clarification is needed. Similarly if it is not possible to provide the information requested due to it exceeding the cost of compliance limits, we would be grateful if you could advise as to how we might refine our request accordingly.

Thank you for your time and we look forward to your response.

Many thanks,
Tracey Vickers on behalf of HCT Group
