The number of adults receiving social care is collected by the health and social care information centre (HSCIC) as part of the referrals, assessments and packages of care (RAP) return. However, we are unable to provide data on the number of service users in Chatham and Aylesford as data are not collected at constituency level. Both Kent and Medway are local authority areas for which we are able to supply data.
Table 1 shows the number of and proportion of adults receiving social care in Kent and Medway local authority social service departments in 2011-12. Proportions of adults receiving social care are supplied as a percentage of all adults living within each area according to latest Office for National Statistics (ONS) population estimates.
