Liberty Protection Safeguards Implementation of the Mental Capacity (Amendment) Act 2019



The LPS establishes a process for authorising arrangements enabling care or treatment which give rise to a deprivation of liberty within the meaning of Article 5(1) of the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR), where the person lacks capacity to consent to the arrangements. It also provides for safeguards to be delivered to people subject to the scheme. This conference will update delegates on both the implications of the new Act and the implementation of the Liberty Protection Safeguards in your service, and current issues with managing Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards during and beyond Covid-19.

Self Neglect & Adult Safeguarding: Responding to Self Neglect & Hoarding during Covid-19

FRIDAY 30 APR 2021


The Covid-19 pandemic has created new levels of isolation and loneliness for people increasing the risk of self-neglect. Self-neglect can be a complex and challenging issue for practitioners because of the need to find the balance between respecting a person’s autonomy and fulfilling a duty to protect the adult’s health and well-being.

This conference which features extended interactive sessions focuses on the difficult issue of self neglect and adult safeguarding during Covid-19 and includes an extended focus on hoarding. Through national updates, practical case studies and extended interactive group work the conference will cover self neglect, meeting the statutory safeguarding guidance, safeguarding people who self neglect: the evidence and what works, developing guidance for professionals when dealing with self neglect during Covid-19 and resistance to engage with services, an extended session on hoarding, and an extended session on dealing with the underlying causes of self neglect working in partnership with people who are self neglecting in a multidisciplinary way.
