What is the Court of Protection?

The Court of Protection was created under the Mental Capacity Act 2005. Its purpose is to make decisions for people who lack capacity and cannot make decisions themselves. This can be concerning property, financial affairs, medical and personal affairs.

The Court determines how and what decisions can be made for someone and appoints deputies who can make ongoing decisions for people who lack capacity. The Court also makes decisions about lasting powers of attorney and statutory will applications.
