Care Act Advocacy

 

Since 1 April 2015, under the Care Act, local authorities have had to provide access to advocacy for those who would otherwise have substantial difficulty in being involved in care and support processes and have no appropriate person in their life, be that a carer, family member or friend, who can support their involvement.

 

To qualify for advocacy support under the Care Act from Derbyshire Mind the client must recently have received or imminently need support from an IMHA (under the Mental Health Act) or IMCA (under the Mental Capacity Act).

 

The service is independent and free of charge
