The Court of Protection makes decisions and appoints people to act as deputies on behalf of those who are no longer able to make decisions about their health and welfare, property and finances, and who haven't made provision by appointing a Power of Attorney. It also resolves disputes that arise from Power of Attorney appointments and has the power to make statutory wills.
Any Court of Protection Deputy must be over the age of eighteen.
