Advocacy Services 2019

Start of consultation: 07 Oct 2019
End of consultation: 15 Nov 2019


The Isle of Wight Council have a statutory obligation to ensure that people are involved in any decisions made about them and their care and support.  We want to help people to understand information and consider their options so that they are able to express their wishes and make their own decisions.

In order to deliver this support, we commission an independent advocacy support service.  Advocacy is available for individuals who have substantial difficulty engaging with the care and support process and who do not have another suitable person to help them.

You can read more about the advocacy service here:

Consultation Activity:

The Isle of Wight Council is currently reviewing the independent advocacy service it provides in order to improve and develop this valuable support for local residents.  We want to gather feedback from Island residents to support this review. We value people’s experience, knowledge and comments as this will help us to shape the service for the future. The online survey started 7 October 2019 and ends on 15 November 2019.

Fire and Rescue Service: Integrated Risk Management Plan

Start of consultation: 30 Sep 2019
End of consultation: 24 Nov 2019


This plan is about improving public safety, reducing the number of emergency incidents and saving lives.

HFRS and IWFRS exist to make life safer. We achieve this through the use of risk management. As fire and rescue services we work to identify risks within our area and then assess those risks to see how likely they are to occur. From this we can then make plans manage these risks.

More information can be found on the Hampshire Fire and Rescue website, here:  


Consultation Activity:

More information, including an online survey, is available for the IRMP consultation which looks to explain how we are managing our risk. 

We ask that you read the plan before completing the online survey, in order to understand what HFRS and IWFRS believe to be the risks facing our communities and how we plan to meet these risks:
