The Liberty Protection Safeguards (LPS) will replace the Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards (DoLS) on 1 April 2022. This was announced in a Mental Capacity (Amendment) Bill which passed into law in May 2019. Key features will include starting at 16 years of age, and deprivations of liberty having to be authorised in advance by the ‘responsible body’.

Upcoming webinar: Liberty Protection Safeguards - 26 April 2021

This webinar is an opportunity to learn more about the key changes under LPS, the journey and progress to date and how SCIE will be working with the sector to support this transition.
