About this event

The Court of Protection exists to help people who lack mental capacity to make day-to-day decisions about property, health and financial welfare where there is no power of attorney. When a loved one or relative lacks mental capacity it may be due to an illness such as Alzheimer’s, injury, learning disabilities or mental impairment such as a stroke.

In cases like these, the Court of Protection will appoint a ‘deputy’ who will act in your best interests.

Understanding how the Court of Protection and deputyships work can feel complex and overwhelming so it is important to understand what’s involved before you take the next step.

Join our online webinar on Wednesday 19th June from 10am-11am where our legal experts will be providing professional and practical guidance what you should consider before appointing, or becoming, a deputy. This will include:-

  • Who can act as a deputy?
  • The role of a deputy – what duties do they have?
  • Challenges and tips for deputies
  • The different forms of deputyship
  • How long does it take for the Court of Protection to appoint a deputy?
  • The importance of having a Lasting Power of Attorney in place

The presentation will run from 10am -10.45am and there will be an opportunity for attendees to submit questions during the session.
