Inclusion North – Mental Capacity Act Information Session
March 13 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Information Session with Tim Whaley
The Mental Capacity Act is an important way of protecting the rights and liberty of people who may need support around decision making in their lives, including people with a learning disability and/or autism.
This affects the role of family members and family carers in any decisions being made.
The Act covers all sorts of issues and provides a legal framework around decision making including choosing where to live, consent for health treatment, taking risks, issues of money and property and more.
Lots of family members and family carers have said that making sense of what it means for them and their loved ones is difficult. This session will help family members and family carers to do this.
