NMCF Webinar: managing without the Liberty Protection Safeguards

Registration is open for the next NMCF Webinar, which takes places this Thursday, 11 April, noon-1pm.  The focus will be on the challenges of applying the MCA/DoLS framework in the absence of the Liberty Protection Safeguard (LPS).  With implementation of the LPS now postponed, how can we best ensure effective implementation of the MCA/DoLS framework so as to provide meaningful protection of the liberty of vulnerable persons whose capacity may be impaired?

Confirmed speakers include: Margaret Flynn (NMCF Chair); Lorraine Currie (West Midlands ADASS); Martin Sexton (Principal Social Worker for Adult Social Care, Salford); Chelle Farnan; Ben Troke (Partner, Weightmans Solicitors); Alex Ruck Keene (Barrister, 39 Essex Chambers).


Participation is free, however places are limited and advance registration is required. To register, please follow the registration link and answer the registration questions.
