Independent Mental Capacity Advocate

Established under the Mental Capacity Act 2005, IMCAs work with people over the age of 16, who lack mental capacity on either a permanent or temporary basis and have no one able to support and represent them to make decisions in relation: to long-term care moves; serious medical treatment; safeguarding adult procedures; or care and support plan reviews. IMCAs support people so their views and feelings are heard and their rights upheld in the decision making process.
