Response 16-08-2017

A) £92.70

B) £79.82

C) £79.82

 

2. 

A)   £77.81

B)   £33.23

C)   £53.20

 

3. As the RAS is used in conjunction with the Supported Self-Assessment Questionnaire, which is completed at the start of the assessment process, there is no distinction between the resource allocation process based upon the different options.  As the options are not determined or decided at this point then there is no distinction in resource allocation

A) There is no notional provision for respite care, it is based on outcomes and the indicative budget.   If the choice of meeting the agreed outcome was through the provision for respite would be personal choice and dependent on their indicative budget to determine what they would be able to afford.

B) There is no notional provision for day care, it is based on outcomes and the indicative budget.  If the choice of meeting the agreed outcome was through the provision for day care, this would be down to personal choice and dependent on their indicative budget to determine what they would be able to afford.

Funds are not allocated via provision as this is against the ethos of SDS, funds are allocated through a RAS based system and are allocated to meet outcomes and not provisions, hence why we do not allocate set amounts against specific services.

4. We do not have any data to show this.
