The Court of Protection
- Decides whether a person has the capacity to make a particular decision
- Makes declarations, decisions and Orders on financial and welfare matters effecting people who lack capacity
- Appoint Deputies to make decisions for people who lack capacity and who are unable to make decisions themselves
- Removes Deputies and Attorneys when required to do so
- Decides whether an Enduring Power of Attorney (“EPA”) or Lasting Power of Attorney (“LPA”) is valid.
The Court may also be asked to make decisions in situations where there is no valid EPA or LPA and when an EPA or LPA does not give authority to make a particular decision (for example with regards to gifting or investments).
