Mental Capacity and Decision Making Sessions
Short notice for these sessions, though they have been available on our website and Facebook for some time…..
We all make decisions every day, some simple, some more complex. When supporting a young person with additional needs it is vital that we all understand how decisions about their lives are made to ensure their needs are met and rights protected’.
An information session for parents and carers about how decisions are made with and for young people and adults with additional needs.
The session will include:
• How mental capacity assessments are completed
• Information about the legal framework
• How decisions are made in a person’s best interest
There will be time to ask questions throughout the session and you will be given some written information to take away with you.
We have organised separate daytime and evening sessions, so that those that work through the day are also able to attend.
The daytime session will be held at Sandy Lane Children’s Centre, on Friday 7th February from 11am – 1pm
The evening session will be at Orford Youth Base on Tuesday 11th February from 6pm – 7.30pm.
