Independent Advocacy Service Consultation

Tuesday 21 July 2015

The County Council is taking the implementation of the Care Act 2014 as an opportunity to commission a new integrated advocacy service delivered through a single contract across Cambridgeshire.

This will replace the current seven individual advocacy contracts with various providers. In addition the Council is required to provide advocacy for carers.

The Council has no preference for what the new single advocacy service will look like. They are consulting with people who currently use advocacy services or may do so in the future, as well as current and potential providers, for their views on what would make a good and effective single advocacy service. The Council will use this feedback to help design the new single advocacy service.

The consultation is running from 13th July to 12th October 2015 and an online survey can be found on the County Council website: http://www.cambridgeshire.gov.uk/site/custom_scripts/cons_details.aspx?ref=371

Copies of the survey are also available in different formats such as large print and Easy Read.

The consultation closes on Monday 12th October 2015.
