Purpose of the Audit

The Organisational MCA Strategic Audit Tool has been developed by the Lancashire MCA/DoLS Sub Group to reflect standards of practice within organisations.

The aim of this audit tool is to provide organisations with a consistent framework to assess monitor and/or improve their arrangements in line with the Mental Capacity Act 2005.

The audit tool is a process that requires partner agencies to complete all sections of the audit tool to self-assess and benchmark their own areas and to enable you to:

- Identify strengths and areas of good practice
- Areas for improvement within individual organisations
- Action plan to monitor improvements.
