How does the Court of Protection work?

The Court was established to ensure that if someone cannot make decisions themselves (either through illness, injury or old age), then decisions can be made on their behalf in their best interests. The Court also decides if someone lacks the capacity to make decisions in the first place.

You can apply to the Court to appoint a deputy, to allow the appointed person to make some decisions on their behalf. Most deputies are appointed to make decisions in relation to finance and property, although some do allow for decisions concerning health and welfare.
