Summary

This National Indicator Set (NIS) underpins the performance framework for local government and meets the then government's commitment to introduce a clear set of national outcomes and a single set of national indicators by which to measure them (as set out in the local government white paper Strong and Prosperous Communities).

For the year 2010-11 the NHS Information Centre collected information on eight of the indicators which relate to social care and mental health services. The social care information provided at Council level for all councils with Adult Social Services responsibilities (CASSRs) in England and presented in this report is provisional and relates to the period April 2010 - March 2011. Final information is expected to be published in March 2012.

The mental health information in this report is supplied by NHS trusts providing specialist mental health services. This report includes final 2010-11 data for the two indicators (NI149 and NI150) that relate to people in contact with secondary mental health services.

Key facts

Promoting independence and choice

  • NI 125 - The number of older people (aged 65 and over) discharged from hospital where there was the intention to return home was 36,500 of which 29,900 (81.9 per cent) were still at home after 91 days, compared to 81.2 per cent in 2009-10. This percentage is lower for older clients; 78.5 per cent for those aged 85 and over compared to 87.3 per cent for those aged 65-74.
  • NI 130 - 28.9 per cent of all adults and carers receiving CASSR funded services received them via self-directed support, compared to 13.0 per cent in 2009-10. 38.0 per cent of carers who received services were given self-directed support compared to 26.5 per cent of adults aged 18-64 and 28.6 per cent of those aged 65 and over.

User experience

  • NI 127 - The average score for the Social Care Related Quality of Life in 2010-11 was 18.7 out of a maximum possible score of 24. NI 127 this year is a composite indicator calculated using a combination of questions in the Adult Social Care Survey which cover 8 different outcome domains relating to quality of life. It is not comparable with data for 2009-10.

Carers' services

  • NI 135 - The total number of carers receiving a carer's specific service or advice and information as a percentage of clients receiving a community based service in the year is 28.3 per cent compared to 26.4 per cent in 2009-10. The corresponding value for carers of a service user aged 18-64 with a learning disability was 33.4 per cent compared to 18.2 per cent for carers of a service user aged 18-64 with a mental health problem.

Promoting social inclusion

  • NI 145 - 59.1 per cent of adults with learning disabilities aged 18-64 and known to Councils with Adult Social Services Responsibilities (CASSRs) were in settled accommodation at the time of their assessment or latest review compared to 60.6 per cent in 2009-10. The percentage of female adults with learning disabilities in settled accommodation (60.1 per cent) was higher than for males (58.3 per cent).
  • NI 146 - 6.6 per cent of adults with learning disabilities aged 18-64 and known to Councils with Adult Social Services Responsibilities (CASSRs) were in paid employment at the time of their assessment or latest review compared to 6.4 per cent in 2009-10. The percentage of female adults with learning disabilities in paid employment (5.6 per cent) was lower than for males (7.4 per cent).
  • NI 149 - 66.8 per cent of adults with mental health problems aged 18-69 in contact with secondary mental health services were known to be in settled accommodation at the time of their assessment or latest review.
  • NI 150 - 9.5 per cent of adults with mental health problems aged 18-69 in contact with secondary mental health services were known to be in paid employment at the time of their assessment or latest review.
