About your Course

The Mental Capacity Act 2005 was created to protect the rights of any individual who lacks the mental capacity to make decisions for themselves.

This can include individuals with severe and enduring mental health issues, through to those with dementia and other conditions that affect the mind.

The legislation is intended to identify when someone lacks capacity and requires a third party to advocate for them to reflect their best interests or their personal goals.

This online course will give you the understanding you need to understand the need for capacity assessments and how to legally act on behalf of someone who is deemed not to have capacity.

Getting Started

Whether you’re a family member, carer or social care worker responsible for an individual who lacks capacity, this course will give you the information you need.

Due to the legalities surrounding capacity, advocacy, power of attorney etc, knowing the legal rights of the individual and your role is essential.

This online course will give you a comprehensive understanding of the Mental Capacity Act 2005. This will allow you to act in accordance with the law on behalf of a third party.
