We welcome spot-purchase arrangements for specific advocacy provision including out of area referrals by local authorities for: Learning Disability Advocacy, Mental Health Advocacy, Care Act Advocacy and IMHA.
Spot Purchase advocacy can help when there is no contract to provide that particular piece of work. It is a single piece of work that can be funded by a range of organisations including local authorities, NHS trusts solicitor firms, voluntary organisations and on an individual basis.
We can support the individual to:
Identify what they want from services
Understand their rights and entitlements
Have their voice heard by services
Help individuals to 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
Fulfilling urgent request
We offer a flexible service which can meet your needs cost effectively.
