Lasting Powers of Attorney

Lasting Powers of Attorney


Monday 15 May, Social Care Workforce Research Unit at King’s College London

Bookings are now open to a free SCWRU & Making Research Count Seminar led by Craig Ward, a practising solicitor and author of Lasting Powers of Attorney.

The Mental Capacity Act 2005 (MCA) was introduced in 2007 and established health and welfare lasting powers of attorney (LPA), advance decisions, deputyships, best interests, redefined consent and mental capacity. Now, 10 years on, we’ve seen changes to the LPA forms and numerous legal revisions affecting vulnerable adults. This seminar aims to bring you up to date with the new legislation affecting the MCA and LPAs, and will include a discussion of what advice to provide when assisting people to make later life decisions.
