FOI Request - People Waiting For Care Packages
I am writing to you under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 to request the following information from your organisation:
1) Can you please provide me with details of the number of people waiting for care packages in your local authority. These are usually sent out to care providers either on a daily or weekly basis and often called 'Unmet Needs' emails .
For comparison, can you please provide this information from the first Monday of September, in 2018, 2019, 2020 and 2021.
That's September 3rd 2018, September 2nd 2019, September 7th 2020 and September 6th 2021.
1. For September 2021, the number of people waiting for care packages is 104
We are unable to provide for the previous years to provide a comparison. This is because we record in a manner that provides a snapshot of live data and only started taking these snapshots in the past few months. As we do not hold this data this information is therefore exempt under Section 17 of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 - Information Not Held
