Are you a carer? Find out more about the Mental Capacity Act

Are you a carer? Would you like to find out more about the Mental Capacity Act?

Then you should head along to one of the ‘Mental Capacity Act (2005) – What does it mean to you?’ events, which are being held in March this year.

The sessions, which are open to the public and free to attend, will take place between 10am – 2pm at the following venues:

Thursday, March 29th – Croxteth Hall, Croxteth Hall Lane, L12 0HB
Friday, March 30th – Toxteth Annexe, Aigburth Road, L17 7BN

These important events will explain the Mental Capacity Act, making legal terms much easier to understand, and answering such questions as ‘what is the difference between Enduring Powers of Attorney and Lasting Powers of Attorney?’ and ‘Who will decide if my loved one has capacity to make a decision if I’m not around to advise?’

Janet Sullivan, Members’ Liaison Officer for Mencap Liverpool, said: “I think it would be beneficial for carers to attend this event. I went last year and found it really interesting and useful.”

As well as entrance to the event, refreshments and resources will be provided free of charge.
