To give participants an overall understanding of how the Mental Capacity Act 2005 applies to issues of sexual
activity. For example, when a service user who has a learning disability, or dementia, wants to have a sexual
relationship. Or perhaps when one half of a couple wants to continue a sexual relationship even though his/her
partner may no longer have the mental capacity to consent to (or engage in) that relationship.
Anyone working in a health and/or social care setting. All participants should already have a basic understanding
of the Mental Capacity Act 2005.
