CS Safeguarding Forum
Wednesday 14th January, 1.30-3.30pm
Community Room, Illingworth Fire Station
Presentation from Ian Burgess – MCA Lead, CMBC

Background
Mental Capacity Act
The Mental Capacity Act 2005 (MCA) creates a framework to provide protection for people who cannot make decisions for themselves. It contains provision for assessing whether people have the mental capacity to make decisions, procedures for making decisions on behalf of people who lack mental capacity and safeguards. The underlying philosophy of the MCA is that any decision made, or action taken, on behalf of someone who lacks the capacity to make the decision or act for themselves must be made in their best interests.
The MCA came into force on 1 October 2007.
The session will cover the 2 stage test for assessing mental capacity, the 5 Principles which underpin everything in the Act and will also detail how and when to assess mental capacity and who does it / who is responsible (not always the same).
Who should attend?
Anyone who provides a service for vulnerable adults (adults at risk) and/or who is responsible for safeguarding within their organisation.

This is an informal session with plenty of opportunities to ask questions.

*Places are limited so please confirm attendance as soon as convenient by emailing steveb@nbforum.org.uk
