Workforce Development

Mental Capacity Act (2005) & Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards workforce development

The MCA Project team support the work of the Hampshire Multi-agency MCA Steering Group by providing learning and development support, resources and opportunities across the public, private and voluntary sectors.

We work with any health and social care organisation in Hampshire helping them meet their workforce development needs, arising from the MCA (2005) legislation and Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards (2007).

We can help if you need to find specialist advice on MCA/DoLS, need to plan learning and development for your organisation or want to access some training for yourself.
