The Court of Protection is the Court responsible for making the orders and directions which may be needed to manage the property and affairs affairs of people who lack the capacity to deal with those issues for themselves.
The principle court is based in London but there are local courts throughout the country. The Senior Judge of the Court is Senior Judge Lush.
The court makes decisions about peoples property and affairs (financial matters) and their health and welfare.
Most applications to the Court and the decisions it makes remain private but in some cases the court makes its decisions or judgements public. You can find details of some of the orders made by the Court of Protection here.
