Script Details

The Mental Capacity Act was a visionary piece of legislation for its time, which marked a turning point in the statutory rights of people who may lack capacity… with the potential to transform the lives of many.

However, its implementation has not met the expectations that it rightly raised. 'The Act has suffered from a lack of awareness and understanding. The rights conferred by the Act have not been realised'

The Mental Capacity Act (MCA) came into force in 2007.

The MCA provides the legal framework for acting and making decisions on behalf of individuals who lack the mental capacity to make particular decisions for themselves. It applies to all those working with people who lack capacity.

The MCA applies to decisions whether they are life-changing events or everyday matters.

The training videos focus on how the MCA is applied in everyday practice.
There are six scenarios - each with a section of key questions for you to work through
Accompanying the video is the MCA training pack which includes fact sheets on each aspect of the MCA - including Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards 
Please note that you should only use the script or your recording of it for auditioning purposes. The script is property, unless otherwise specified, of the voice seeker and it is protected by international copyright laws.
