FOI Request Disability Equipment Purchases
Please can you advise the overall spend on disability equipment (for example seating and standing) for children with special needs within the following periods;
2015/2016 - Actual spend
2016/2017 - Actual spend
2017/2018 – Budgeted
We have not had any council spend on disability equipment for children and families over this period - nor do we have a budget for such. Equipment needs are covered by occupational health and through self- directed support - so families determine/purchase equipment for their own needs. There is some equipment kept by NESS -which loans out items re sensory services .
