rethinkWiltshire IMCA Advocacy

The Mental Capacity Act 2005 (MCA) requires local authorities to provide the IMCA service, which evaluates whether an individual’s Deprivation of Liberty (DOLS) considerations are being met.

The Act provides a legal framework for the right of appeal for vulnerable people who have no family or friends who are available and appropriate to support or represent them, to ensure they are not deprived of their liberty unless it is in their best interests.
