Appointing Independent Advocates Policy
File Size: 734kb    Key Document Click here to see more information about the document

“Advocacy is taking action to help people say what they want, secure their rights, represent their interests and obtain services they need. Advocates and advocacy schemes work in partnership with the people they support and take their side. Advocacy promotes social inclusion, equality and social justice.” (The Advocacy Charter, 2002)

From 1st April 2015 the Care Act places a statutory duty on all local authorities to involve people in decisions made about them and their care and support, for people to be active partners in the key care and support processes of assessment, care and support planning, reviews and safeguarding. No matter how complex a person’s needs, local authorities are required to help people express their wishes and feelings, support them in weighing up their options, and assist them in making their own decisions.  

This policy sets the framework for delivery of Advocacy Services on the island. It is intended to support adult social care and health staff in their person-centred practice and to secure personalised outcomes by helping individuals, their families, friends and/or carers to:

·             speak up for, or act on behalf of, themselves or another person.
·             take action to say what they want, secure their rights, represent their interests.
·             contribute their views, opinions, ideas and feelings to inform processes for continuous service improvement.

Ordinary Residence and Continuity of Care Policy
File Size: 287kb    Key Document Click here to see more information about the document

Ordinary residence is one of the key tests which must be met to establish whether a local authority is required to meet a person’s eligible needs. The test for ordinary residence applies differently in relation to adults with needs for care and support and carers. For adults with care and support needs, the local authority in which the adult is ordinarily resident will be responsible for meeting their eligible needs. For carers, however, the responsible local authority will be the one where the adult for whom they care is ordinarily resident. This is an important point to note, particularly if the carer provides care for more than one person in different local authority areas.

Ordinary residence can be acquired as soon as the person moves to an area, if their move is voluntary and for settled purposes. This is irrespective of whether they own, or have an interest in a property in another area.



Guardianship under the MHA 1983 Policy
File Size: 620kb    Key Document Click here to see more information about the document

The purpose of guardianship is to enable patients to receive care in the community when it cannot be provided without the use of compulsory powers. It provides an authoritative framework for working with a patient to keep him/her safe whilst achieving as independent a life as possible. Where it is used it must be part of the patient’s overall care and treatment plan.

Guardianship is focussed on social care needs and the patient’s welfare. If the need for compulsory powers is primarily in relation to medical treatment Supervised Community Treatment, if available, may be more appropriate.

Respite Care for Adults Policy
File Size: 422kb    Key Document Click here to see more information about the document

This policy clarifies the Isle of Wight council’s (IWC) position regarding respite care and the sustainability of providing a carer’s service. A carer is an individual who provides or intends to provide care for another adult. This excludes paid carers and volunteers. The IWC recognise it is important that carers have regular breaks from caring and have time to themselves, even if it is just for an hour or so. Carers play a significant role in preventing the needs for care and support for the people they care for, which is why it is important the IWC supports carers in their role and help them to look after their own health and wellbeing.



Deferred Payment Policy
File Size: 305kb    Key Document Click here to see more information about the document

The Care Act 2014 (sections 34 and 35) requires local authorities to offer Deferred Payments Agreements to allow persons to defer the sale of their home where it is needed to fund care fees. The Care and Support (Deferred Payment) Regulations 2014 set out the legal framework and local authorities responsibilities in greater detail. The new legal duties are effective from 1 April 2015.

The regulations require local authorities to offer deferred payments to people meeting certain eligibility criteria (see section 7 below). These agreements can be retained until the person passes away (with the amount repayable from their estate) but can also be offered to persons who decide to sell their home whilst still alive (the deferred payment providing “bridging finance”).
