Wrexham: Leonard Cheshire, the Living Wage and fees for residential care for younger adults

Doug Paulley made this Freedom of Information request to Wrexham County Borough Council

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

Wrexham County Borough Council did not have the information requested.

Dear Wrexham County Borough Council,

Leonard Cheshire Disability (LCD) claim that they would like to pay their carers the Living Wage but that they are not paid enough by social care funders such as yourself to do so.

I wonder if you could please tell me:

1) what representations Leonard Cheshire Disability (LCD) have made to the Council asking for increases in the fees paid for social care provided by them, in order to pay their carers the Living Wage.

2) Some idea as to the fees currently being paid by the Council to LCD for residential care, per resident per week. A range of fees or a set of anonymised figures of the fees perhaps. Other councils have opted to supply statistical median and range as they were concerned that individual fees could make it possible for people to have a guess at which residents had which fees.

3) Equivalent information for fees paid to other providers for residential care in care homes for people with physical impairments under the age of 65.

Thank you

Yours faithfully,

Doug Paulley
