This policy sets the framework for delivery of Advocacy Services on the island. It is intended to support adult social care and health staff in their person-centred practice and to secure personalised outcomes by helping individuals, their families, friends and/or carers to:
· speak up for, or act on behalf of, themselves or another person.
· take action to say what they want, secure their rights, represent their interests.
· contribute their views, opinions, ideas and feelings to inform processes for continuous service improvement.
