I would like to make a request for information under the Freedom of Information Act.
Please respond to this email address as soon as possible. I am happy to provide any clarifications.
Please provide details of:
* How many individuals in your council have been assessed for adult social care in each of the last five financial years
* How many have been categorised in each band (low, moderate, substantial and critical [according to the DH Fair access to care services guidance]) in each year
* What support has been offered to individuals placed in each category (low, moderate, substantial and critical [according to the DH Fair access to care services guidance]) in each year
Please can you also provide details on how many individuals in your council have sold their homes to pay for residential care in each financial year since 1997-98.
What is the average length of time for an assessment of somebody for adult social care in the last year for which figures are available.
How many adults in your council have had to be re-assessed due to moving from a different council in each of the last five years, and in each year, what was the average wait before requesting an assessment and receiving support for those who are eligible?
In response to your questions I can advise you that the information you require is held by Essex County Council.
