Training - Care Act Refresher

Category: 

Attendance at the training will assume prior knowledge of the Care Act either through previous training or undertaking Care Act case work.

Care Act refresher will an opportunity to revisit:

  • Key changes introduced by the Care Act
  • Who is eligible to receive advocacy support
  • The advocacy role within assessment, care and support planning, review and safe guarding processes
  • The practicalities of delivering the services (including supporting carers, young people in transition, people with fluctuating capacity)
  • How the role interacts with IMCA and IMHA

In addition we will explore what your experience of the Care Act has been to date including:

  • How come Care Act advocacy referrals are so low, given that this is a new statutory duty for which there was funding?
  • How should an advocate conduct an assertive, polite, professional challenge to the legitimacy of a council’s practice or procedure?
  • Scenarios for illustrating what a little bit of legal knowledge, applied at the right time, can achieve for vulnerable people
