    Managing my Money

    We have until 20 April to get as many votes as possible to help secure a grant from the NatWest Skills and Opportunities Fund. It only takes 2 seconds. Please go to:

    http://skillsandopportunitiesfund.natwest.com/vote/

    To vote click on the North Region, choose Knowsley Disability Concern from the list and click on the vote button.

    Managing my Money will be a programme of practical and fun learning sessions, co-designed by people with learning disabilities to suit their needs and delivered locally in Knowsley.

    Managing my Money will help people with learning difficulties understand about money, what it is worth, how to budget, how to save for the things they need and even run their own bank account.

    PLEASE SHARE THIS POST WITH YOUR FRIENDS AND NETWORKS AND ASK THEM TO DO THE SAME.

    The more votes we get by 20 April, the more chance we have of receiving the funding needed to deliver the Managing my Money project.

    What is the BIG Group?

    BIG stands for Being Involved Group and it is a group for people with a learning disability, who come together to discuss all issues to do with their lives, including health, housing and services.

    It started with the government White Paper, ‘Valuing People’, which outlined how people with a learning disability are being excluded but should, in the future, be provided with the opportunity to live full and independent lives as part of the community.

    How did it all start?

    It started with the government White Paper, ‘Valuing People’ published in March 2001, which outlined how people with a learning disability are being excluded but should, in the future, be provided with the opportunity to live full and independent lives as part of the community.

  • 09/10/18--08:04: Mental Capacity Act 2005
  • Mental Capacity Act 2005

    The Mental Capacity Act is all about making decisions.  It is law.

    Some people are able to make every decision about their own lives. 

    Some people are able to make some decisions.  

    A small number of people cannot make any decisions.  Being unable to make a decision is called “lacking capacity”.

    The Mental Capacity Act is about making sure that people have the support they need to make as many decisions as possible.

    The Mental Capacity Act also protects people who need family, friends or paid support staff to make decisions for them.

    People making decisions for you

     

    • A Lasting Power of Attorney is someone you say can make some decisions for you in the future.
    • The law tells you how to create a Lasting Power of Attorney. You must do what the law says.
    • The Court of Protection can also decide on someone to make plans for you and that is called a Deputy.
    • This can be hard to understand and you should ask for help from your Independent Mental Health Advocate or someone else you trust

    Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards and you

    Sometimes people need treatment or care from people like doctors and nurses or care workers.

    People who are staying in a hospital or living in a care home should be treated or cared for in a way that means they are safe.

    They should be free to do the things they want to do.

    If you are stopped from doing the things you want all the time, this is called being deprived of your liberty. Sometimes people having treatment or care might
    be deprived of their liberty to keep them safe.
