Event Information

Through the Maze 2021A Year in the Court of Protection: What it means for your client's claim

Wednesday 3rd March, 2021 |
Joining instructions to follow from our events team one week before the event.


Our first webinar will take the format of a case study on the following information:

Case Study

Sarah’s parents and case manager are very concerned about her educational placement. They don’t feel it meets her needs but the local authority don’t agree.  Can her Deputy take this to a tribunal?  
  • Sarah’s claim is compromised on liability but NHS Continuing Care funding has been refused.  What does the Deputy do now?
  • Court of Protection costs – what are the new rates anyway and are they about to change?  When do they apply from and what can change that? Does the ACC case affect what I can claim for Deputyship costs?  
  • Child Trust Funds and disabled children – this has been a hot topic in the news recently but there is hope for your client.
  • Can the Court of Protection save my client’s benefits if they inherit?  People inheriting while on means tested benefits is a perennial problem but a recent Court of Protection case gives a different slant on this.

Please recommend this event to your colleagues
