The London Borough of Camden is proposing to re-tender the following Statutory Advocacy Services with a new contract expected to commence on 1st October 2019:

  • Independent Mental Capacity Advocacy (IMCA)
  • Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards (DOLS)
  • Relevant Person’s Representative (RPR)
  • Independent Mental Health Advocacy (IMHA)
  • Advocacy relating to the Care Act:
  • Needs assessment and preparing a care and support plan (section 9 and section 25 of the Care Act)
  • Carers assessment (section 10 of the Care Act)
  • Reviewing a care and support plan (section 27 of the Care Act
  • Safeguarding (section 68  of the Care Act)

 The London Borough of Camden also commissions non-statutory (generic) advocacy, which enables people who have complex needs and require support, to express their views, have their voice heard and make informed choices. The current generic advocacy provision relates to the following cohorts:

  • Older Adults
  • Adults with a mental health problem
  • Adults with Learning Disabilities

The Council would like to explore its options for continuing to commission non-statutory advocacy services through this engagement, in order to inform our procurement strategy.

I would be very grateful if you could complete the attached questionnaire and return to me  via email: by 25th September 2018.
