FOI Request Number of Carers Required
Could I request the following information under freedom of information legislation:
• Any calculation or assessment of the number of carers that are required within council area over the next 5 financial years (including 2016-17)?
Clarified as: Definition to extend to residential homes and someone providing care in people’s home
We do not have a calculation on the number of Social Care Assistants we will require over the next 5 financial years. However, we complete an ongoing process to identify additional care needs according to the need of each area within Moray. We appoint Social Care Assistants in line with 6 induction trainings and identify local need prior to advertising posts.
