Combined Mental Capacity Awareness and Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards

c4

(Updated in line with the Care Act 2014)

The Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards were introduced in 2009 and are part of the Mental Capacity Act 2005 (MCA). The safeguards are used to protect the rights of people who lack the ability to make certain decisions for themselves and make sure that their freedom is not inappropriately restricted.
