Scope of the Toolkit
• Concerns the law as it is now. Does
not deal with proposed changes.
• Concerns adults, not children
• Does not deal with wards of court,
powers of attorney, Assisted Decision-
Making (Capacity) Act 2015
• We hope to produce updated online
versions when the law changes

Scope of the Toolkit
We recognise that sometimes, if a
person has mental health difficulties:
• Toolkit may not be available to
them if they do not have Internet
access
• they may not be in a position to
engage in detail with the Toolkit
