Our services in Lewisham

We offer a hospital discharge advocacy service for Lewisham residents at University Hospital Lewisham, whose discharge is at risk of being delayed. This may include IMCA, Care Act and general advocacy.

We provide the following services:

  • Independent Mental Capacity Advocacy (IMCA)
    What’s this?

    Independent Mental Capacity Advocates (IMCAs) support people who lack capacity to make decisions about their long term accommodation or serious medical treatment and who do not have any friends or family appropriate to consult.

  • Care Act advocacy
    What’s this?

    Independent Care Act advocates support people to understand their rights under the Care Act and to be fully involved in decisions about any care and support they need. This includes local authority assessments, care reviews, care and support planning and safeguarding processes.
