Deferred payment agreement schemes

I would like to request information under the Freedom of Information Act regarding deferred payment agreement schemes within your local authority.

Below there are three questions we would be interested in finding out the relevant information for:

• How many deferred payment agreements do you currently (as at 25 June 2018) have in place?


• In 2017, how many people contacted you for information on how to pay for care?

Devon County Council does not hold this information

• In 2017, how many peoples long term care did you – as the local council – pay for:
o In full
o Partially

In the period 2016/17 (01.04.16 to 31.03.17) DCC supported a total of 4,160 (including 1,224 carer DP’s) persons in long term adult social care receiving a Direct Payment (18+).
