The OCP is the department of the High Court with responsibility for the administrative work associated with Part VIII of the Mental Health [Northern Ireland] Order 1986. It is responsible for the appointment of ‘Controllers’ – persons who have court authority to manage the finances and property of someone who, through mental incapacity, is unable to manage their own affairs.

The session will provide information on the controllership application process, the duties of an appointed controller and information and guidance in respect of Enduring Powers of Attorney.
