Independent Mental Capacity Advocate (IMCA)

Weighing up a tough decision: Man sat thinking on sofa

Should a paid RPR consult with friends and family?

A Relevant Person’s Representative (RPR) is an advocate assigned to a person who is under the Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards (DoLS). They are assigned by the Supervisory Authority to ensure the individual’s voice is upheld and supported while deprivations are in place. This includes the responsibility to raise a review and then a challenge if the relevant person is objecting to their care, treatment and/or placement.
