VoiceAbility IMCA service

DescriptionIndependent Mental Capacity Advocacy, or IMCA, is a statutory advocacy service for people who have been assessed as lacking the capacity to make a specific decision in their life. It is known as a statutory service, which means there is a legal obligation to provide this type of advocacy. This is defined in law in the Mental Capacity Act.

VoiceAbility is a national charity that provides advocacy services and supports people who face disadvantage or discrimination to have a voice that counts.

To refer someone to VoiceAbility for this type of advocacy contact the IMCA service.

There is also a local VoiceAbility service for the Wandsworth area. See the separate record or search for VoiceAbility Wandsworth to find it. For all referrals other than the IMCA service please contact the local office.
