How the QPM works

The QPM works in conjunction with the Advocacy Code of Practice, enabling providers to demonstrate how they are meeting the different standards set out in the code.

The QPM is available to organisations which provide Independent Mental Capacity Advocacy (IMCA) services and those which provide independent advocacy to clients who are not covered by IMCA.

The process of applying for the QPM Award is the same for organisations providing IMCA and non IMCA advocacy.  Those which provide IMCA services will be required to provide additional information and evidence related to specific topics.
