What is the Court of Protection?
Part of the role of the Court of Protection is to help protect and manage the property and financial affairs of people with mental incapacity to prevent them from being exploited or denied what is rightfully theirs. This can include situations where there are no family or friends to take on such a responsibility and cases where there may be a family dispute, a financial issue or where Social Services are involved. It can also include complex cases that relatives are not willing or able to deal with.
