The Court of Protection addresses issues not only of finances but also where deprivation of liberty safeguards and procedures are authorised or challenged, disputed capacity issues are resolved,   and where arguments about adult protection and best interests are determined.

It is essential that all those working with vulnerable people / safeguarding have an understanding of how to access and use the Court. In certain circumstances there is a legal obligation on authorities to apply to the Court.

The course will include updates relating to appeals against Liberty Protection Safeguards if implementation is imminent.
