The Mental Capacity Act is an important way of protecting the rights and liberty of people who may need support around decision making in their lives, including people with a learning disability andf/or autism. This affects the role of family members and family carers in any decisions being made. The Act covers all sorts of issues and provides a legal framework around decision making including choosing where to live, consent for health treatment, taking risks, issues of money and property and more. Tim is able to come to Sheffield through support from Inclusion North and carers who have attended his sessions before have found them brilliant.
One carer said it was the most useful session he’d attended in 30 years of caring!
What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?
You can catch the blue or purple tram to the Park Grange Croft tram stop which will say Halfway or Herding on it. Norfolk Lodge is directly opposite the tram stop and down a lane, there is big white sign saying Sheffield Mencap and Gateway at the top of the lane, next to the bus stop. It is literally a couple of minutes from the tram stop to Norfolk Lodge
Limited Parking is available on site, otherwise there is on street parking and if you cross the tram tracks there is some parking spaces there.
Donations are always welcome for any of our talks.
