Following recommendations from a number of Safeguarding Adults Review on the need to raise awareness and improve practice in relation  to the Mental Capacity Act the WSAB have developed a serise of Podcasts and Webinars. These were developed in collaboration with people and  families who have experience of  health and care services and give overview of the legislative frameworks, as well as taking  time to explore how this may be received by the person, their parents and carers.
