Independent Care Act Advocacy

The Care Act creates a new legal framework for care and support, focussed on wellbeing and enshrining advocacy in law

An advocate will obtain information relevant to you and your situation, including:

  • Asking you your views, wishes and beliefs 
  • Reviewing relevant health and care records, with your permission 
  • Consulting anyone else who may be involved in your care, such as carers, friends and family, also with your permission

We will represent your views, your wishes and your beliefs, not those of others who may be involved, and we will help you communicate these.

We will support your involvement and participation, and help you understand your rights and how your needs can be met under the Care Act

We can help you weigh up the different care and support options to come to an informed decision.

We offer one to one support in private, and our service is free, confidential and independent.

The Care Act says we must challenge the local authority where we have concerns with the decision-making process.
