  • Advocacy service for carers

    Created: 08/06/2021

    Fife Health and Social Care Partnership has commissioned Circles Network to provide an advocacy service to assist carers in understanding the importance of having a power of attorney.

    This is to ensure that carers have the legal powers they need to make decisions should the person they care for lose capacity, and to support the carer and cared for person to arrange a suitable power of attorney. The service will also support carers who find themselves in a situation where, due to not having a power of attorney in place, a guardianship order is required. Its advocates will support carers to navigate the process, so a suitable legal guardian is appointed as quickly as possible.

    Contact the Circles Network for more information on this service.
