piloting the national data collection

The tool

To prepare for this national collection, we have been testing how to collect and present the data. At its fullest, we have data from 22 councils, some 990 services and 70,100 units.

By downloading one of the files below, you'll be able to see the data for yourself. The reporting tool draws together data about capacity, costs, performance and outcomes. You can filter the data by:

  • client group
  • type of service
  • length of stay
  • outcome

It shows averages for your selection on funding per unit, utilisation (SPI 2), throughput (SPI 4), percentage maintaining independence (KPI 1), percentage achieving a planned departure (KPI 2) and outcomes. Headline data is also shown using dial-charts.

The pilots

Twenty-two local authorities agreed to take part in a pilot study to help test methods for collecting national data on housing related support. The pilot has shown it is still possible to assemble and compare housing related support data. Both commissioners and providers will find even the pilot data, covering the first quarter of 2012/13, is a fascinating snapshot of what used to be the Supporting People world as it now finds itself more than a year after Supporting People funding was incorporated into Formula Grant for upper-tier local authorities.
