National Mental Capacity Forum

The National Mental Capacity Forum is a joint new Ministry of Justice and Department of Health initiative.

Its purpose is to work with stakeholders from health and social care, together with those from other sectors (for example, finance, legal, police, housing) to identify complementary actions which member organisations can pursue, especially at a local level, to improve implementation of the MCA.

The Forum will bring together those responsible for implementing the MCA to identify and take forward shared actions that realise benefits for people who use services. The Forum will consist of a small, core group of stakeholders representing different areas in the sector, and a larger group of associate members.
