Court of Protection
The Court of Protection
The court of protection exists to look after the best interests of those who lack the mental capacity to make certain decisions for themselves. The court has the power to determine if a person lacks capacity and decide what actions to take including the appointment of lay and professional deputies to act on the individual’s behalf.
