The Sexual Offences Act 2003 provides a number of different offences which may apply when there has been a sexual act to a victim where consent was not given by them. People who lack the capacity to choose whether or not to consent or who cannot communicate their choice would come under this category.

There are also offences concerning sexual acts against people who are vulnerable to inducements, threats or deception because of a mental disorder and other offences concerning care workers and sexual activity with people with a mental disorder.
