Care Act advocacy: understanding your duties and the advocate’s role – Free webinar
June 19 @ 10:30 am - 11:45 am
The advocacy rights under the Care Act have had a difficult first two years with evidence that many people are going without their entitlement to advocacy and some professionals do not fully understand their duties or the role of the advocate.
In this webinar, advocacy trainer Kate Mercer will support social care practitioners working with adults to better understand their advocacy duties and work more effectively with adults. It will use case studies to test and reinforce practitioners’ knowledge of Care Act advocacy entitlements, offer tips on working more effectively with advocates and explore how Care Act advocacy fits with other forms of statutory advocacy, notably independent mental capacity advocacy.
Sign up for the webinar to ensure you know when to refer to Care Act advocacy and how to make it work in practice.
