MCA Audit Tools
The tools below have been developed by the MCA/DoLS Sub Group to reflect standards of practice within organisations.
The aim of the tool is to provide organisations with a consistent framework to assess, monitor and/or improve their arrangements in line with the Mental Capacity Act 2005.
The audit process requires partner agencies to complete all sections of the tool to self-assess and benchmark their own areas and to enable you to:
- Identify strengths and areas of good practice;
- Identify areas for improvement within individual organisations; and
- Prepare action plans to monitor improvements.
