FOI Request - Social Care Staff Support Fund
Please provide the following information:
1. How many claims have been made to the Social Care Staff Support fund?
2. What is the total spend of the fund, broken down by month?
3. How many claims were approved and how many were rejected broken down my month?
The Council has made no claims to this support fund as far as our employees are concerned as we have other provisions in place to support employees who have had to self isolate or be absent due to Covid 19.
However, it may be that there are social care providers who the Council contract with that have made use of this fund but that information would be with the service rather than HR as that would not relate to the Council employed workforce. Information regarding claims made by providers outwith the Council is therefore exempt under Section 17 of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 - Information Not Held.
