Here to help with questions relating to learning disability and its impact on family carers
Community Care Online was (very) quick off the blocks to publish an article under the headline Law Commission reveals Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards replacement (with the sub-headline: Government-ordered review recommends replacing DoLS with new two-tier system of human rights protections) . So quick off the blocks that I haven’t had time to read it fully.
You can find an overview and introduction to the report on the the Law Commission website which in turn has links to the report itself (all 270 pages of it!).
Leading chambers 39 Essex Street (specialists in Court of Protection and Mental Capacity Law) will be holding a breakast briefing (sold out!) on the Law Commission proposals tomorrow in central London, from which I suspect news, blog posts etc. will emerge.
We will keep you updated. More on this very important topic to follow, obviously…
