Raising Awareness of the Mental Capacity Act

In March 2014, the House of Lords Select Committee on the Mental Capacity Act 2005 published its ‘Mental Capacity Act 2005: post-legislative scrutiny’  report, celebrating the ethos and achievements of the MCA, but calling for awareness and implementation of it to be extended. Lack of awareness of the Act, especially amongst those who would benefit from knowing about it, was a problem before 2014 – and is still a problem.

The Social Care Institute for Excellence (SCIE) has just published its Updated Mental Capacity Act directory

Well worth taking a look if you have any questions about capacity, deputyship, deprivation of liberty etc.

If you are a carer, best place to start is the page entitled  MCA resources for users and carers
