MHM Wales is commissioned by Bridgend County Borough Council to provide the Independent Professional Advocacy (IPA) service for specialist communication or support needs including dementia, mental health, sensory impairment, physical disabilities or life-limiting conditions and access-all IPA service to ensure any other eligible clients, including care home residents and unpaid carers, are able to access an IPA.


People First Bridgend are commissioned by Bridgend County Borough Council to provide a Specialism IPA service for learning disabilities and clients with Autistic Spectrum Conditions.


The Social Services and Well-being (Wales) Act 2014 sets out requirements for local authorities relating to advocacy under Part 10 (and related parts). Advocacy ensures that individuals have a voice, choice, and control over their lives


The Independent Professional Advocacy Service is available to those entering into or already engaged with Social Services, and is accessible when a person can only overcome the barrier(s) to participate fully in the assessment, care & support planning, review & safeguarding processes with assistance from an appropriate individual, but there is no appropriate individual available.
