Home / Resources & Guidance / Suggested amendments to enable the Mental Capacity Bill to achieve its aims in practice.

Aims of the Bill

  1. To protect the human rights of extremely vulnerable people who may lack capacity to consent to arrangements thought necessary to protect them or others, where those arrangements amount to a deprivation of liberty
  2. To achieve (A) in a less bureaucratic, less confusing and less resource‐heavy way than the current schemes
  3. To improve the confidence and competence in providing human rights‐based and MCA compliant care of care providers (particularly at the level of front‐line managers: these are the people whose actions must put into practice the principles of the MCA)
