Self-Neglect and Applying the Mental Capacity Act Webinar

We all recognise how challenging it is work with people who self-neglect. Our practice is improving but have we got it right for people yet? Safeguarding Adult Reviews suggest we haven’t. IT IS TIME TO MOVE AWAY FROM “THIS IS A LIFESTYLE CHOICE”.


Join this Webinar by Shropshire Council and Telford & Wrekin Council to find out more about:

  • National leaning from Safeguarding Adult Reviews about self-neglect
  • The legal framework
  • Mrs M’s story
  • What a good mental capacity assessment looks like


This webinar will be of interest to practitioners and professionals from health and social care - social workers, nurses, care workers and providers and took place originally on 19/05/2021.
