This report takes data from the Adult Social Care Finance Return (ASC-FR), Short and Long Term (SALT) collection and Deferred Payment Agreements (DPA) return to provide information regarding adult social care finance and expenditure. This publication replaces the previous Personal Social Services: Expenditure and Unit Costs and Community Care Statistics series', bringing activity and finance data together for the first time in the same publication series. This is the third year of the SALT and ASC-FR collections, and the second year of the DPA collection (although the latter was previously voluntary and this year was part mandatory)
PLEASE NOTE: 2015/16 expenditure data for West Berkshire is understated in this publication by £14,000 - this affects the Long Term residential care with a Primary Support Reason of Physical Support for the 18-64 age group only, and has minimal impact on regional and national figures. Data included in the 2015/16 Personal Social Services Expenditure and Unit costs publication remain correct, and should be considered the definitive source of data for this year. We apologise for any inconvenience this error may cause, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you require further information.
