Independent Advocacy

At all stages throughout an ASP intervention consideration must be given to the wishes of the adult and the provision of appropriate services to empower the adult to express their views and to protect themselves.

The adults views and wishes are central to support and protection.

In all situations an adult should be advised of independent advocacy and encouraged to consider this.

This decision should be kept under review and, in situations where an adult decides not to use advocacy, it can be that they might later benefit from advocacy should be offered again.
