Mental Capacity (Amendment) Bill: open letter to the VODG

The Minister of State for Care Caroline Dinenage has written to the Voluntary Organisations Disability Group (VODG) about the Mental Capacity (Amendment) Bill.



The letter explains some of the safeguards present in the Liberty Protection Safeguards model and the amendments brought forward at the report stage of the bill in the House of Commons to strengthen the proposals.

It sets out the department’s intentions for the Code of Practice and invites the Voluntary Organisations Disability Group and other organisations to be included in its production.
