Using the Mental Capacity Act
This video explains the MCA and how it can protect the right to make choices. For people who need the MCA, their carers, and others.
How can we improve support for carers?
Informal carers (also called unpaid carers) are people who look after family members, friends, neighbours or others because of long-term physical or mental ill health or disability, or care needs related to old age. This does not include any activities as part of paid employment.
We want to know how we can improve support for carers.
We’d really appreciate it if you could tell us about your experience with caring and answer some specific questions about types of support and how helpful they are. There is also a section at the end for you to tell us about any other relevant experiences or anything we've missed. To take the survey click here.
