Dear Luton Borough Council,

I would like to request the below information in line with the Freedom of Information (FOI) Act 2000.

• The number of Adult Social Care (Social Services) Board Members

• Whether the Director of Adult Social Services has a social work qualification and is currently registered with the HCPC

• Is The Principal Social Worker a board member

• The gender split of the Adult Social Care (Social Services) Board.

• The ethnicity split as defined by UK Census categories of the Adult Social Care (Social Services) Board.

Where you do not operate an adult social care board I would like for the above questions to be applied to the senior management team that delivers adult social care functions and report to the Director of Social Service (DASS) or whoever fulfills this statutory role (if defined by a different name in your authority).

Further in the absence of a formal Adults Social Care Board can you advise whether the PSW forms part if the senior management team as defined above.

Yours faithfully,

DATA

 

Thank you for your FOI concerning the number of Adult Social Care “board
members” with a social work qualification.

 

I need some clarification of what you require. When you refer to the
“board” which collection of managers are you referring to? Do you mean
service managers who form part of the management group that delivers adult
social care or the directorate management group that is joint with our
colleagues in children’s services or were you thinking of the operational
management groups  that come under the service managers who deliver the
day to day adult social care services?

Dear Ellender, Nick,

Thank you for your response and request for clarification. I am interested in the management group that reports directly to the Director of Adult Social Services. Where you do not operate an adult social care board I would like for the above questions to be applied to the senior management team that delivers adult social care functions and report to the Director of Social Service (DASS) or whoever fulfills this statutory role (if defined by a different name in your authority).

Further in the absence of a formal Adults Social Care Board can you advise whether the PSW forms part if the senior management team as defined above.

Yours sincerely,
