The Liberty Protection Safeguards will replace the Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards framework on 1 October 2020. It is expected that the draft Code and Regulations will be laid before Parliament this Spring. The scheme will apply in all settings including in an individual’s own home.
These new safeguards will significantly alter who can authorise a deprivation of liberty. It is essential that Liberty Protection Safeguard leads, advisers and senior managers are aware of the new framework and are ready for these changes.
To assist you in preparing for the introduction of the Liberty Protection Safeguards, we are offering the following:-
