(2) what average annual charge was paid to each local authority in England with social services responsibilities by home care services users that contribute towards the cost of their care in 2006-07.
Information for the financial year 2006-07 is being collected and is due to be published in February 2008.
Table one shows the annual expenditure on home care services for each local authority for 2005-06.
Table two shows the actual income recouped via sales, fees and charges to clients receiving home care services funded fully or in part by councils with social services responsibilities for each local authority for 2005-06. Both tables have been placed in the Library.
Information is collected only on the total number of people receiving services. Data on the number of those who are contributing to the funding of their care are not collected separately and so the average annual charge requested cannot be calculated.
