“Paid Representative” Advocacy

Timely and comprehensive reports to support the wellbeing of people subject to Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards (DOLS)

We offer one-to-one advocacy work with individuals, at a very competitive hourly rate. A number of Local Authorities around the country commission us to provide Paid Representatives and other types of Advocacy to people who have been placed in the Dorset area.

Our advocates visit people in their homes or in hospital, in line with our agreement with their funding Local Authority and produce a comprehensive report. Download Paid Rep report template
