Care and support for disabled and elderly people during 'Lockdown 2' in England – key legal considerations

During the next month in England, a second 'lockdown' has been imposed which restricts the population to their own homes and prohibits gatherings, in both cases unless there is a reasonable excuse. These measures have obvious and significant implications for people in need of care and support, their families and friends and professionals involved in their lives. In this webinar, Sian Davies and Steve Broach will consider:

  • Circumstances in which those in need of care and support and their carers can leave their home
  • The law in relation to visiting people in need of care and support, both in care homes and other settings
  • Other relevant exceptions to the 'lockdown' restrictions for people in need of care and support, including in relation to support groups and short breaks / respite care
  • Practical implications for those being cared for, their carers, and statutory bodies providing care
