The Court of Protection exists to ensure that people who do not have the mental capacity to make certain decisions for themselves are kept safe, and decisions are made in their best interests.

At Setfords, our expert solicitors can assist you with all Court of Protection matters to ensure that your vulnerable loved one is protected and you can have peace of mind.

What is the Court of Protection?

Court of Protection Orders can be granted for a vulnerable person if there is no Lasting or Enduring Power of Attorney in place. The Court of Protection will make important decisions in the vulnerable person’s best interests. These decisions can include those surrounding their welfare, finances, health, property, and more.

The court can appoint a ‘Deputy,’ an approved person who will make decisions on behalf of the vulnerable individual. We can help you if you are worried about or responsible for someone else, or if you are concerned about your own ability to manage your affairs.
