Kingston Advocacy Services

In Kingston we provide:

  • Independent Mental Capacity Advocacy (IMCA): People who have a mental illness, dementia, or an injury to the brain can be declared by a medical professional as lacking the capacity to make their own decisions. Our advocates work to ensure that their rights and best interests are taken into account. (Go to page or see the IMCA Service Leaflet)
  • Care and Support Advocacy (Care Act): Under the Care Act (2014), local authorities must ensure that a person is fully involved when their social care and support needs are being reviewed. Certain people are entitled to an independent advocate to help them to be as involved as possible. (Go to page or see the Care Act Service Leaflet)
  • Relevant Person’s Representative Advocacy (RPR): A Deprivation of Liberty Safeguard (DoLS) is designed to protect people who are being deprived of their liberty in a hospital or care home. People in this situation have access to a Relevant Person’s Representative to uphold their best interests. (Go to page or see the RPR Service Leaflet)
  • Generic Advocacy (Mental Health and Learning Disability): We can help certain people to ask for the services they need, search for the right support or challenge any health / social care services they currently receive. We do not deal with benefits, financial or housing issues. (Go to page or see the Generic Advocacy Service Leaflet)
  • Kingston’s Appropriate Adults Advocacy service is subcontracted to the Kingston Advocacy Group. For more information please visit their website.
