NICE Guideline NG108 - Decision-making and mental capacity

Independent advocates can have a role in promoting social inclusion, equality and social justice and can provide a safeguard against the abuse of vulnerable people. Independent advocates take action to act to help people say what they want, secure their rights, represent their interests and obtain the services they need. Together with their provider organisations they work in partnership with the people they support and speak out on their behalf.
