Click the links to sign-up on Eventbrite: 8 March 12pm, 29 March 12pm, 5 April 12pm, 26 April 12pm

The sessions will focus on the 5 statutory principles of the MCA, and how this can be applied in practice. A number of cautionary practice examples will be presented to demonstrate when the act has been misinterpreted or wrongly applied. The aim is to support practitioners to build confidence and understanding of how they should be using MCA within day-to-day practice and how they can avoid making the same mistakes. Each session will last 1.5 hours with Paul presenting examples drawn from his 15 years of close working with the MCA in order to demonstrate that at its heart this legislation is not as complex as many seem to believe.

!! As there is a high demand we ask that you please cancel your ticket if you are no longer able to attend as soon as you are able, to free up the slot for others who would like to do this training!!
