Mental Capacity Act

Mental capacity act

The Mental Capacity Act (MCA) protects your money, health and welfare, if you can’t make all your own decisions.

  • You may be unable to make all your own decisions because of dementia, stroke or brain injury or a learning disability or mental health problem.
  • You may have the capacity to make everyday decisions, but not to make larger, more complex decisions.
  • You may have the capacity to make decisions one day but not the next.
  • Your capacity to make decisions might improve or get worse over time.

For government guidance, please see the Mental Capacity Act code of practice
