Paid Persons Representative (RPPR) service - POhWER

Description

Persons being deprived of their liberty in care homes or hospitals have a statutory right to have a representative to support them to exercise their rights under the Mental Capacity Act. If there are no appropriate, willing or able friends or family to take on this role, then the Supervisory Body must appoint a paid representative.

POhWER’s Relevant Person’s Paid Representatives (RPPR) are qualified advocates who have specialist knowledge of the Mental Capacity Act 2005 and Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards (DoLS) legislation.

Our RPPR’s are required by the Act to be independent from the care home or hospital where a person is being deprived of their liberty, as well as the Local Authority and Supervisory Body/DoLS team whom are depriving the person of their liberty.
