Care Act Advocacy

Care Act Advocates help people to understanding and uphold their rights, set out in the Care Act 2014.

This involves supporting people to be involved in all decisions about their care and support, including local authority assessments, care reviews, care and support planning or safeguarding processes.

You could be entitled to Care Act Advocacy if you find it difficult to access services and you feel you are not being listened to. Care Act Advocacy is free and fully independent.

A Care Act Advocate can help you to:

  • Understand your rights to care and support
  • Explore your options and choices
  • Be fully involved in decisions about your care and support
  • Be fully involved in your care planning and reviews
  • Understand how to raise complaints about care and support decisions
