Have you heard about this thing called the Mental Capacity Act and Best Interest Decisions but worry about what it means? – Look no further!

Do you worry about whether your family member is able to give consent for themselves?

Have you been told “now they are an adult you cant decide for them” or “they have the capacity to decide for themselves”?

Do you worry about being excluded from the decision making process?

If any of the above apply you need to come to our webinar.

Hft’s Family Carer Support Service (FCSS) is a free national service for family carers in England who have an adult relative with learning disabilities and/ or autism. As one of Hft’s charitable projects, they are funded exclusively through voluntary donations and grants. They support family carers to understand and exercise their rights, and to navigate statutory services including adult social care and health.

On Wednesday 30th March Hft’s FCSS will be joining the Essex Carers Network to deliver a webinar on the Mental Capacity Act and Deputyship.

Topics to be covered include:

  • An overview of the Mental Capacity Act
  • What to do when you disagree with a Best Interests decision
  • Mental capacity and finances (Appointeeship, Deputyship, Lasting Power of Attorney and banking)

We will be hosting 2 sessions one from 10am-12noon which will include a presentation followed by a live Q&A session. Please note the evening session from 6-8pm will not include a live Q&A however all questions will be collated and the team will provide answers which we will send out to everyone a few days after the session.
