Deputyship
Everyone has to make decisions in life. Under the Mental Capacity Act (MCA Cap 177A), a person who is certified to lack mental capacity requires a deputy – a court-appointed individual (21 years old and above) who is granted specific powers by the Court to make decisions for the benefit and welfare of the person. MINDS offers:
  • MSF Assisted Deputyship Application Programme (Below 21 years old) We guide parents/caregivers of persons with special needs in applying to Court to be deputies for their child/ward after he or she turns 21.
  • NUS Deputyship Student Assistances Programme (Above 21 years old) We guide parents/caregivers of adults with special needs in applying to Court to be deputies with assistance from NUS Law students and guidance from NUS Centre for Pro Bono & Clinical Legal Education.
