The person with lived experience and the multi-agency team around them
We're pleased to announce that our second self-neglect and hoarding event will take place in July. We have interviewed a person, Ms G, with lived experience and you can hear from her and the multi-agency team who worked with her.
Wednesday 22 June 2022, 9.30-11am
In conversation with Alex Ruck Keene
Those of you who have been associated with NSAB for some time will be aware that in December 2020, we were joined by Alex Ruck Keene, an experienced barrister, writer and educator, who introduced us to his work, and talked about mental capacity in the time of Covid.
We're pleased to say that Alex has kindly taken time out of his sabbatical to hold another 'in conversation with' session where the subject of Liberty Protection Safeguards will be covered. There will also be the opportunity to ask questions.
Wednesday 4 May 2022, 10-11.30am
In conversation with Daphne Franks
Daphne will talk to Walter Lloyd-Smith from NSAB about her mother, Joan Blass, who was 91 years old with severe dementia and terminal cancer. Following her death in 2016, Daphne found that Joan's much younger male friend had married her mother secretly. This meant that, as her legal husband, he had control of Joan's funeral and inherited her whole estate. Daphne will talk about her campaign to change the law to prevent predatory marriage happening again.
