The NHS Information Centre for health and social care collects data on the number of clients (aged 18 and over) planned to receive services commissioned or provided by councils with adult social service responsibilities (CASSRs) via a personal budget as at 31 March 2009.

Information on the numbers of people assessed for, awaiting assessment for, or declining a personal (social care) budget is not collected centrally.

The table provides provisional information on the number of clients planned to receive services provided or commissioned by CASSRs via a personal budget as at 31 March 2009. Final data for 2008-09 are expected to be published on 28 April 2010.

(1) Data for 2008-09 are provisional, final data are expected to be published on 28 April 2010.

(2) Two personal budgets are currently being rolled out and councils are at varying stages of roll out, therefore there is a large variation in figures at CASSR level.

(3) Missing data items.

(4) Data less than six has been suppressed.

Figures within the table include clients in receipt of direct payments as part of a personal budget, but do not include carers in receipt of direct payments or with a personal budget.

An England total for the figures is not provided as data was not provided by all CASSRs. These data are provisional, and final data, including an England total with calculated estimations for those councils that have not provided data, will be published on 28 April 2010.
