UIN HL3871, tabled on 5 May 2020

This information is not centrally held.

Whilst the Short and Long Term Services (SALT) collection contains information on the number of requests for support relating to transferring to the care of adult social care services, we do not collect data around delays, needs or exact age.

The SALT collection relates to the social care activity of councils with adult social services responsibilities in England.
