“Through The Wooden Doors” 2019

November 4th, 2019 Posted by Community Events, In The News No Comment yet

Eden Law was honoured to support the Community Justice Centre’s (CJC) annual “Through the Wooden Doors” programme on Thursday, 31 Oct 2019. This year, the focus was on Deputyship, the Mental Capacity Act, Vulnerable Adults Act and Guardianship.

 

 

 

 

 

 

While providing an overview on these topics to the social service professionals in attendance, June also shared on the recent developments on the iFAMS platform aimed at enabling the public to file simple Deputyship applications on their own.

By helping social workers understand the legal issues better, getting them acquainted with the court system and the available sources of help, we hope to play a part in aiding the community in times of need and channel the community to the appropriate resources in a timely and correct manner.
