Mental Capacity Act (MCA) & Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards (DoLS)

You are here:

The Mental Capacity Act aims to empower and protect people who do not have the ability to make their own decisions, especially about things like finance, social care, medical treatment and living arrangements. Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards (DoLS) are intended to protect people who lack mental capacity from being detained when it is not in their best interests.

The amount of contact time required for each course is varied and we can offer training day(s) to suit your needs by covering several courses at the same time. The training can be delivered at your place of work, giving your staff the opportunity to be trained on how to use equipment correctly and work safely in their normal working environment.
