Mental Capacity Act & DoLS Awareness Workshop


The aim of this training is to increase awareness of the Mental Capacity Act (MCA) and Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards (DoLS). This awareness will help when developing strategies to support an individual to make decisions, and reduce the risk of depriving someone of their liberty.

Increased awareness of the MCA & DoLS avoids situations that can occur in the workplace when staff might unwittingly deprive an individual of their liberty, or deny them choice and opportunities. The legislation is not intended to restrict or control people's lives, but to enable, support, and to protect people who lack capacity to maximise their ability to make decisions, or to participate in the decision-making process.

This workshop is a stand-alone-course that has strong links to the NAPPI Positive Behaviour Support continuum. The more staff are aware about an individual, the more that can be done to reduce behaviour of concern and empower them to have a better quality of life.

Awareness Workshop Pricing:

The cost of attending the 3 hour workshop is £75 + VAT per person for the first 1 - 4 participants. The price is reduced to £60 + VAT per person for 5 - 9 participants and then further reduced to £45 + VAT per person for 10 or more participants.
