Mental Capacity Act Forms

Date published: 09 September 2019

Last updated: 26 July 2022

The legal framework for Deprivation of Liberty provided by the Act is supported by a set of Forms.  Most of the Forms are statutory but all are recommended to be used. These Forms support Phase One of the implementation and commencement of the Act only.


Forms 1-2 and 4-16 are statutory Forms which must be used when undertaking certain functions under the Act therefore the content of the Forms cannot be amended.

Forms 3 and 17-21 are not statutory Forms.  However, their contents are statutory so it is highly recommended that they are used.

Form 22 is for guidance only.
