This report collects information on the number of adults receiving person centred services from organisations in the independent sector funded via grants from Councils with Social Services Responsibilities (CSSRs) in England.
The information presented in this report was collected using the GFS1 form during the survey week commencing 13 November 2006. If this week could not be used councils were asked to choose an alternative week between 1 September and 30 November 2006.
Organisations were requested to return information on all adults who had received their person centred services during the survey week. They were also asked to provide details on the amount of funding from social services budgets which was given to the schemes in terms of grants. The return was concerned with information on adults aged 18 and over.
The figures in this report are estimated to include only those people that were receiving person centred services as a result of social services funding.
