People working in social care must have an awareness of the Mental Capacity Act (MCA) 2005. There was a general concern that the rights of individuals who lacked the capacity to make health and care decisions for themselves were at the risk of being abused. The Government aimed to address these matters with the introduction of the Mental Health Capacity Act 2005. The Act aims to empower and protect people who may not be able to make some decisions for themselves. It also enables people to plan ahead in case they are unable to make important decisions for themselves in the future. This workshop focuses on providing an awareness of the Mental Capacity Act 2005.
