This is a report on the social care activity of Councils with Adult Social Services Responsibilities (CASSRs) in England. It contains information taken from council administrative systems used to record the process of assessing eligibility to state-funded social care and providing services where people are eligible.
It combines data from three sources: the Referrals, Assessments and Packages of Care return (RAP), the Adult Social Care Combined Activity return (ASC-CAR) and the Personal Social Services Expenditure and Unit Costs Return (PSS-EX1). Information presented here is based on final data and relates to England for the period 1 April 2012 to 31 March 2013. This report supersedes the interim report published on 7 November 2013 and contains more detailed analysis of data.
