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.
The report 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 2012 to 31 March 2013. It will be superseded in early 2014 by the release of the final report which will also include data on the number of home care hours taken from the Personal Social Services Expenditure Return (PSS-EX1).
National level information is provided in this report; CASSR level data are available in csv format within the zip file accompanying this report.
