Protecting vulnerable people
If you are responsible for looking after the interests of a vulnerable person, you will know how important trust and sensitivity are.
A person who is incapacitated through injury or accident, or an elderly person suffering from dementia or the effects of a stroke, may need someone to control and manage their financial affairs. Similarly, the family of a child left severely injured and perhaps awarded compensation will need help with the organisation of the child’s day-to-day needs such as care, education, living arrangements and general welfare.
This is a highly specialised area of the law, and it requires a very special type of lawyer – one whose empathy and dedication are just as important as their legal expertise. This is what makes Moore Blatch different.
Ours is probably the only specialist full-time Court of Protection team working in Hampshire and Dorset. We help and support families and individuals over long periods – often many years – developing a close, trusted relationship with them.
We provide a highly personalised service, giving you peace of mind that your loved ones are receiving the very best support available.

Sometimes it is the more vulnerable people in society who have the most difficulty in accessing the health and social care services they need.
If you, or someone you care for, are having difficulty accessing health or social care services, then we can help. We provide a whole range of services designed to meet the needs of vulnerable people, including children and the elderly and their carers. We can help you gain access to all available NHS and social care services to ensure you have the support and assistance you need, whether you live at home or in a residential care home.
Whatever difficulties you face, perhaps resulting from an accident, disability or illness, we will act on your behalf with your local health trust or local authority to obtain the best possible solution for you. As well as helping you cope with the day-to-day practicalities, we will also work to ensure we maximise the quality of your daily life.
With us, you can rest assured you have the support of professional legal expertise and assistance, giving you the practical support and peace of mind you need.
