The Court of Protection
Professionals in all legal processes involved with The Court of Protection
The Court of Protection was been established by the Mental Capacity Act 2005, to ensure the rights of people who lack the mental capacity to manage their own property, affairs or personal welfare is protected.
The Court of Protection is there to protect vulnerable people and in doing so can decide if they have the capacity to make a decision for themselves and if they conclude not, make decisions on financial or welfare matters on their behalf.
The Court of Protection can also decide on the validity of Enduring and Lasting Power of Attorneys and can appoint someone to manage a vulnerable person’s affairs in the absence of such power of attorneys.
