Advocacy in Norfolk
POhWER Norfolk provides Independent Mental Health Advocacy (IMHA), Independent Mental Capacity Advocacy (IMCA), including Deprivation of Liberty Safeguarding (DoLS), and Relevant Paid Person’s Representative services (RPPR).
POhWER works in partnership with other organisations, regardless of issue/s, to ensure consistency and seamless support. Alongside local advocates, they also work with Equal Lives to deliver the RPPR service, and Age UK/Equal Lives and Norfolk/Rural Community Council to deliver NHS Complaints Advocacy.
POhWER also provides the independent social care advocacy service for people who need support to help make decisions about their care, or to participate in decisions made with Adult Social Services relating to their care. Access to this service is only through referral from Norfolk County Council’s Adult Social Services.
All of these services can be accessed from 8am to 8pm, Monday to Friday.
