Coronavirus (COVID-19):

Coronavirus remains a serious health risk. It’s important to stay cautious and help protect yourself and others. Please continue to follow national government advice.

Support for people who can't make or understand important decisions

Sometimes people aren’t able to make important decisions themselves, and don’t have family or friends who are able to help. These decisions may relate to:

  • Serious medical treatment
  • Changes of accommodation
  • Allegations of abuse
  • In-care reviews.

If this is the case we can arrange for an Independent Mental Capacity Advocate to work with them, to support them through the situation and represent their views.

To ask for help and support from an Independent Mental Capacity Advocate you should contact Advocacy Matters using the details on this page.
