Demographics on Learning Disabilities, Mental Illness and Elderly People within Devon

“I am looking for demographics within Devon with facts and figures on Learning disabilities, mental illness and elderly statistics within Devon

It would be particularly useful to gain these separately and grouped by age, gender and if possible, more precise location such as ward?

The information provided below is for Adults with Learning Disability Support or Mental Health Support needs who have support services provided by Devon County Council, a small proportion of which reside outside of Devon itself, as at 30 November 2018.  We have been able to provide this information for Exeter in isolation, however further ward/town summaries cannot be provided due to very small numbers which are exempt from disclosure under Section 40(2) of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 – ‘Personal Information’ as release of these figures could lead to the identification of the individuals concerned.
