Special event – Law Commission Consultation – Deprivation of Liberty: What does this mean for housing?

The Law Commission is currently consulting on deprivation of liberty safeguards, but what challenges do the safeguards currently present to housing providers, what is being proposed, and how does this impact on housing providers?

Sitra, ARCO, Housing LIN & the NHF are jointly organising two regional half day workshops to enable providers to appreciate the current and proposed regimes, consider the implications for housing, and feed into the Law Commission consultation.

Please note that this is a charagable event.
