The Principles of the Mental Capacity Act 2005
We use The Principles of the Mental Capacity Act 2005
We pride ourselves on the depth of our assessments and use our knowledge and experience to adhere to the principles and key messages laid down in the Mental Capacity Act 2005.
The key messages within the Mental Capacity Act (MCA) 2005 are that the Act applies to everyone involved in the care, treatment and support of people aged 16 and over who live in England and Wales and who are unable to make all or some decisions for themselves. The MCA was designed to protect and restore power to those vulnerable people who lack capacity; this is really clearly set out in the principles of the Act which we overview in a minuet.
