The service provides independent advocacy support for people who have been assessed to lack the capacity to make specific decisions and have no one appropriate for the decision makers to consult with. The advocacy involves ascertaining clients’ wishes, feelings, beliefs, and values relating to decisions on serious medical treatment, changes of accommodation, during the care review processes or Adult Safeguarding processes. The advocates are independent of the person making the decision and will represent the client within meetings and discussions, submitting a report which raises considerations which the decision maker should take in to account. The advocate will question and challenge any decision that appears not to be in the client’s best interest. This service is free to access and independent of all other services.
