Care Act and Social Care Advocacy

Care Act Advocacy:

Supports people to access assessment, planning and review of their social care and support in relation to their mental health needs. This would involve advocacy to Adult Social Care (Adult Social Services), part of Leicester City Council.

Anyone who would have substantial difficulty in being involved in this process is entitled to advocacy under the Care Act. They should be referred to LAMP if they do not have anyone else to support them in making decisions about their care and support.

Anyone who is subject to safeguarding measures who would have substantial difficulty being involved in the process is also entitled to advocacy under the Care Act.
