Deprivation of Liberties

This short 3 hour course is aimed to provide staff with an overview and understanding of what Deprivation of Liberties means. The Mental Capacity Act 2005 provides a framework for acting and making decisions on behalf of people who lack capacity or are unable to make decisions for themselves.
