Question and answer
5.2 Describe how to support an individual to question or challenge decisions concerning them that are made by others
That depends on the mental capacity of the individual you want to support. First, you must obtain their permission and then you must get them to express as exactly as possible what help they reckon they need. [ Then you can offer further information, suggestions, and a plan to challenge such decisions. You could offer to be their spokesperson if they weren't confident enough to speak out, or to
accompany them to any hearing or appointment. However, if the person is mentally impaired, you would have to get their signed permission to speak and act on their behalf before any health or social care workers would listen to you. Because of issues of confidentiality, you either have to be next of kin, or obtain powers of attorney or guardianship. ]
