Find out more about virtual attendance  

This conference will update delegates on both the implications of the new Act and the implementation of the Liberty Protection Safeguards in your service, and current issues with managing Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards during and beyond Covid-19.

“The Liberty Protection Safeguards were introduced in the Mental Capacity (Amendment) Act 2019 and will replace the Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards (DoLS) system. The Liberty Protection Safeguards will deliver improved outcomes for people who are or who need to be deprived of their liberty. The Liberty Protection Safeguards have been designed to put the rights and wishes of those people at the centre of all decision-making on deprivation of liberty. The Liberty Protection Safeguards are planned to come into force in April 2022..”

Department of Health, January 2021

“It remains vitally important, both in the DoLS now and the LPS in future, to make sure people using services, together with their families, supporters and advocates, are kept at the heart of the process. The human rights and quality of life of many thousands of people made vulnerable by their circumstances depend on it.”
