Spot-purchased Advocacy Services
We welcome spot-purchase arrangements for specific advocacy provision including out of area referrals by Local Authorities for Mental Health Advocacy, Care Act Advocacy, IMCA, DoLS and RPR work, etc.
Spot-purchase advocacy can help when there is no contract to provide that particular piece of work. It is a single piece of work funded by an individual, their representative or a statutory service to provide advocacy for an individual client.
We can support the individual to:
- Identify what they want from services
- Understand their rights and entitlements
- Have their voice heard by services
- Make difficult decisions for themselves
This advocacy can be on an instructed basis with an individual who can make an informed decision about what they want, or on a non-instructed basis with an individual who does not have the capacity to make an informed decision and where someone else is a decision maker on their behalf.
Some further benefits of providing advocacy via spot-purchase are:
- May prevent waiting lists
- May be able to bridge a gap in provision e.g. Mental Health Advocacy in the community.
Please contact 0330 440 9000 to discuss our spot-purchase arrangements.
