Independent Mental Capacity Advocates

Independent Mental Capacity Advocates help vulnerable people who lack capacity to make their own decisions and who do not have relatives or friends to speak for them when serious or difficult decisions are being made.

Advocates look at the way decisions are being made but do not make decisions on behalf of the person they represent.

They are independent of Oldham Council and always aim to ensure that the best interests of the person are being considered.

The Independent Mental Capacity Advocate service for Oldham Council is run by Together for Mental Wellbeing.
