    When does the Court need to appoint a deputy?

    A deputy can be appointed after someone has been deemed to lack capacity. People can lack mental capacity as a result of:

    • A serious brain injury or illness, which impacts cognitive ability
    • Developing dementia or confusion in old age
    • Having severe learning difficulties

    An application will need to be made to the Court to appoint a deputy before any decisions can be made. Before a deputy is appointed, the Court will make any decisions on the person's behalf.
