I am seeking information about the numbers of people who are being cared for at home, or in a care or nursing home, at a cost to your Group, Council or Trust.
The total cost of those services.
Details on the number of people who are waiting for these services.
This information should be broken down to cover the last 3 calendar years, 2016, 2015 and 2014.
To be clear this information should cover any person receiving paid for care, no matter their age.
1. How many people have been cared for at home using agency staff?
2. What has been the gross cost of these services?
3. How many people have been cared for in a care or nursing home?
4. What has been the gross cost of this care?
5. How many people are on a waiting list for any of the above services?
6. What is the shortest, longest and average period of time spent on the waiting list?
To be clear, what we seek is the total number of people being cared for at home or in care/nursing homes over the relevant time period, the cost to your Group, Council or Trust for those services and the number of people on any waiting list for those services.
Using data from national statutory returns maximises their value and enables comparison between authorities according to a standard set of definitions whereas asking ad hoc queries of local authorities risks responders interpreting these queries differently. Therefore, we publish open data locally and nationally and encourage requesters to use those facilities wherever possible.
Information about our contracts, spend over £500, grants to the voluntary sector, workforce, and our statement of accounts can be found on our open data – facts and figures page.
We also publish our annual budget with a breakdown of adult social care planned spend and activity.
Information about the workforce in the wider social care sector in Devon and elsewhere can be accessed via a set of online dashboards.
Information on adult social care expenditure and costs by local authority area.

Each year we publish an annual report and we also periodically arrange peer reviews of adult social care services in Devon:
