The Experts in Mental Capacity Assessment

Our qualified experienced and registered Social Workers complete all of our mental capacity assessments. We provide a relaxed and informal approach to ensure you have the best opportunity and help in making decisions. 

We know the decisions taking place are important and should not be unnecessarily delayed. That's why we aim for a 7-day turnaround for all of our assessments, from referral to the completed documents back with you. 


Court of Protection (COP3)


When applying for deputyship to the court of protection, the courts require a mental capacity assessment to be completed by a health and social care professional. This is commonly referred to as a COP3.


Our Social Workers are experienced experts in assessing capacity and understand that an efficient service means clients can be safeguarded, we aim to have a turn around of 7 calendar days from referral to completion.

What happens if the person has capacity?

A CoP3 form is designed to evidence a lack of capacity, however as per the principals of the Mental Capacity Act (2005) we always assume capacity.

If a person does have capacity then we can still complete a COP3, although as this only shows limited information we would also provide a full mental capacity assessment report at no additional cost. 

We listen, we advise, we help, we support. Contact us today for a FREE consultation and let’s see if we can help & Support you today.
