The Social Care Institute for Excellence has produced a short video outlining the new Liberty Protection Safeguards (LPS).

These have a planned start date of April 2022 and aim to shift the focus from deprivation to protection of liberty, aligned with human rights and the core principles and duties of the Care Act 2014.

The new Liberty Protection Safeguards (LPS) has a planned start date of April 2022. LPS will bring reform and a new system, which will seek to further protect the liberty of those who do not have mental capacity to make decisions about their care.
