A series of legal workshops for carers with Carolyn Hunnisett at Project Art Works

These three-part sessions will be led by Carolyn Hunnisett, Community Care Lawyer, Occupational Therapist and Independent Mental Capacity Assessor. Booking onto all three sessions is advisable.

Session 1: Getting the message across – navigating and negotiating skills for carers, Thursday 12th August 10am – 12.30pm

This session will focus on developing an understanding of complaints procedures, tips for navigating challenges and honing negotiation skills when advocating for an adult with complex support needs. Carolyn will explore when to use the law for the best possible outcomes.

Session 2: How to challenge decisions, Thursday 26th August 10am – 12.30pm  

This session will cover the pillars of the Mental Capacity Act and explore the difference between Lasting Power of Attorney, Deputyship and Next of Kin within the context of Best Interest decision-making.

Session 3: Putting it into practice, Thursday 9th September 10am – 12.30pm

Through exploring a series of lived-experience case studies, this session will look at how to use insight from the first two sessions and when to draw on your legal toolkit, what to push and when to escalate.

The sessions will take place in-person at our studio base in Hastings. If you have any particular access requirements and/or caring responsibilities that may impact on your ability to engage with the training please contact Esther. For those who wish to participate virtually, we can arrange a link-up via Zoom.

This training is being provided as part of the Support Collective programme and is funded by Skills for Care and There Guineas Trust.
