an explanation of what the social care worker must do if they are unable to gain consent or if the individual is not able to express themselves
Social workers will not act without the informed consent of service users, unless required by law to protect that person or another from risk of serious harm. [ Where service users' capacity to give informed consent is restricted or absent, social workers will as far as possible ascertain and respect their preferences and wishes and maintain their freedom of decision and action, whether or not
another person has powers to make decisions on the service user's behalf. Where the law vests the power of consent in respect of a child in the parent or guardian, this in no way diminishes the social worker's duty to ascertain and respect the child's wishes and feelings, giving due weight to the child's maturity and understanding. ]
