Paid RPR

  • Our Paid Relevant Persons Representatives (RPR) are qualified advocates who have specialist knowledge of the Mental Capacity Act and Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards legislation.
  • The supervisory body must appoint an RPR for every person to whom they give a standard authorisation for deprivation of liberty.
  • It is important that the representative is appointed at the time the authorisation is given or as soon as possible and practical thereafter.
  • The Paid Relevant Persons Representatives are independent of the commissioner's and providers of the services the person is receiving.
  •  

The role of the Paid Relevant Persons Representative is to:


  • Maintain contact with the relevant person
  • Represent and support the relevant person in all matters relating to the deprivation of liberty safeguards
  • Trigger a review
  • If necessary, challenge the authorisation through local means, where possible. Or ultimately, refer the case to the Court of Protection
