Laura has a lot of experience working with adults with learning disabilities and/or mental health problems, primarily in the learning and development sector. The foundations of this has always been in safeguarding and the Mental Capacity Act. Laura’s dissertation focused on choice and control for adults living in supported living facilities which helped to find out the real picture of the Mental Capacity Act in practice.
