Mental Capacity Act

The Mental Capacity Act 2005 is a profoundly important piece of legislation. It is not just concerned with setting out the legal rules that must be applied when a person is assessed as being mentally incapable of making a particular decision; it also provides the mentally capable with the means to plan ahead for a time when they might lack the capacity to make decisions for themselves.


The Act therefore has the potential to impact upon the lives of all adults living in England and Wales and this site has been set up to help you understand the implications.
