Advocacy and Relevant Person Representative (DOL’s) Service

Suffolk Family Carers is part of the Total Voice Suffolk Partnership. We have qualified advocates who can provide free, independent and confidential advocacy service across Suffolk. Advocacy and Self advocacy can be vital for people who cannot speak up for themselves, or for people who do not feel they have the power to do so.

Advocacy and Relevant Person Representative (DOL’s) Service (RPR)

We have a team of RPR’s working with individuals who are deprived of liberties to safeguard them whilst they are living in care homes and hospitals. When and individual is under a DOL’s and has no family or friends able to act on their behalf, the RPR will ensure that they have their rights upheld and that the deprivation is lawful, proportionate and in their best interests.
