Expertise is only the first step to the solution
In almost any scenario, be it business, personal circumstances, sport or fighting for a good cause, simply having the right level of ability is not always enough to ensure a great result. It is usually the passion, belief and determination of the people involved which makes the biggest difference of all.
We are independent advocates with a role identified in the Care Act 2014. The Care Act regulations for independent advocacy are clear: providers of advocacy must be independent of the local authority, with their own constitution, code of practice and complaints procedure. Our advocates under the Care Act will at all times be managed by, and primarily accountable to our advocacy organisation that recruits them, thereby maintaining their independence from the local authority.
