– For each of the past 5 calendar years (2015, 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019), how many people who applied for assisted / supported / sheltered living because they have a learning difficulty were successfully placed, and how many are still waiting?
Please see answer to question 1 above.
However, in response to the question how many people who were successfully placed in assisted / supported / sheltered living with a learning difficulty in 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019 we can provide the following information – individuals with a Primary Support Reason of Learning Disability or Main Health Condition of Learning Disability, who first moved into a supported accommodation address in the following years are:
|Year||Number of learning disability clients housed|
The numbers refer to individuals who are eligible for supported accommodation and have been placed in supported accommodation as a part of their care and support plan based on their Care Act 2014 assessment. Information about Sheltered Housing may be held with District Councils, please contact them directly using the information on the link provided.
– For each of the past 5 calendar years (2015, 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019), of those people who applied for assisted / supported / sheltered living because they have a learning difficulty, and were successfully placed in such housing, what was the average wait in days between them applying, and them moving in?
To identify, locate, retrieve and extract this information, we would have to manually examine the 380 cases outlined above. With each one taking approximately 10 minutes, this would total 63 hours, well in excess of the 18 hours allowed under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 Section 12 – Cost of Compliance.
