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.
