parental Welfare Deputies

An appeal from Belinda Blank
Independent Advocate and Director for the The Advocacy and Support Partnership:

"According to the Mental Capacity Act, parents and families can only apply to become Welfare Deputies for their vulnerable young people in 'difficult' cases.

Three parents who are campaigning to have the law changed so that when vulnerable, learning disabled children turned 18, loving parents retain the legal right to make important decisions about their welfare, and they are seeking to crowdfund to change the law in this area. 

Please see the link below to read more details and join this important campaign. Every small donation helps to potentially protect vulnerable young people and make sure their families are involved.
Best wishes
