What is the Court of Protection?

The Court of Protection makes decisions about the financial affairs or wellbeing of people whose mental capacity won’t allow them to do this for themselves.

Established under the 2005 Mental Capacity Act, the Court of Protection can make decisions about:

  • welfare, property and general affairs
  • a person’s own ability to make a decision about a particular issue or issues providing, withholding or withdrawing medical treatment
  • lasting powers of attorney
  • appointing a ‘Deputy’ who can support someone with limited mental capacity.

For example, perhaps you feel that you or a loved one have been forced into residential care following a hospital stay or a serious illness. Or maybe you have been told that you are no longer fit to care for a vulnerable dependent. A relative who suffered brain damage in an accident may have received sizeable compensation but lacks the capacity to protect their assets in a will. You might even have been denied access to a vulnerable or disabled family member. In these and many other cases, you can apply to the Court of Protection for a decision on what should happen next.

A helping hand

Applying to the Court of Protection for decisions or declarations can be a daunting prospect, especially when you are already worried or upset about the problem you’re facing. Specialist help is at hand from Wrigleys experts who will give you clear advice, make the appropriate applications to the Court and provide you with friendly and professional support every step of the way.
