Note: The Final Council Level Expenditure Voluntary Items file was revised on 9 November 2011 due to an error in the calculation of Gross Current Expenditure. No other data items were affected.
The Personal Social Services Expenditure return (PSSEX1) collects detailed information on Personal Social Services (PSS) expenditure. Data collected within the PSSEX1 is used by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) to monitor the performance of Social Services across councils. From 2008-09 information has been collected for Adults social care expenditure only, children's social care expenditure is now the responsibility of the Department for Children, Schools and Families . Information within this report is the final data for 2009-10 and supersedes the provisional data published in November 2010.
Note:Hackney Council has notified the HSCIC that the £19,897,000 attributed to expenditure from the Supporting People grant for their council was included in error. This figure does not include any social care expenditure, and it is entirely housing related, which is not collected in the PSS-EX1 return. Their Total Net Expenditure should therefore be £80,740,000 for 2009-10. This should be taken into consideration when using these figures at a council level. The impact at a national level is minimal.
