Abstract

This paper focuses on the introduction of the mental capacity legislation and in particular its application to care and family proceedings in the UK. It reviews challenges with regards to its implementation, noting serious shortfalls in its use even a decade after the mental capacity act was introduced. Guidance is provided within the paper with regard to maximizing capacity and involvement of individuals in care proceedings where these issues have been raised. Case examples are also used to clarify and to contextualize these matters.
