• 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:-

    Onsite training sessions
    We will be offering onsite training sessions which will be tailored according to your needs.

    • LPS - A basic overview. This is a 2 hour session which will give large groups a basic overview of how the Liberty Protection Safeguards will apply to your organisation. This session will be appropriate for junior or less experienced staff. 
    • LPS - This is a detailed 4 hour training session for senior and experienced staff who will be implementing the LPS in their organisation.
