Mental capacity law protects those who are unable to make decisions for themselves, which could be due to dementia, or a brain injury following a car crash or stroke. We act for those suffering from a range of injuries and with varied needs including:
• Very young children with birth injuries,
• Adults with an acquired brain injury following a traumatic event
• Those who have lost capacity as a result of a stroke or a condition such as alzheimers.
We fully endorse and support the Office of the Public Guardian (OPG) in their vision for the future development of the work of the OPG and in what they will endeavour to achieve:
“To encourage everyone to prepare for a possible lack of mental capacity and to empower and safeguard those who lack mental capacity now”
