This is a report on the social care activity of Councils with Adult Social Services Responsibilities (CASSRs) in England. It combines data from two sources, the Referrals, Assessments and Packages of Care (RAP) and the Adult Social Care Combined Activity Return (ASC-CAR). Information presented here is provisional and relates to England for the period 1 April 2010 to 31 March 2011. Final data is expected to be published in March 2012.
National level figures are only available if all 152 councils have provided that data item, apart from two of the RAP tables where estimates have been made for missing data. Therefore not all results published previously are available at this stage, but they will be available when final data for 2010-11 is published. The number of service users receiving direct payments is not referred to in the executive summary as there are concerns around the data quality of this item.
