Court of Protection

The Court of Protection is responsible for making decisions for adults in England and Wales who have been assessed as lacking capacity to make certain decisions themselves.

The powers of the Court of Protection include the appointment of deputies to make property and financial decisions, the power to make decisions about a person’s health and care, power to approve a statutory will for a person who lacks capacity to make a will themselves, and power to settle disputes about all of these matters.
