RPR Guide


This booklet is designed to help you understand and fulfil your role as a relevant person’s representative (RPR). As an RPR, you have been appointed to support a person who is deprived of their liberty under the Mental Capacity Act 2005 Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards (MCA DOLS).

When a person lacks the mental capacity to make decisions about the care or treatment they need, and may be at risk if that care is not provided, it is sometimes in their best interests to deprive them of their liberty. The aim of this is to prevent them from coming to harm. The MCA DOLS exist to ensure that no one is deprived of their liberty without good reason, and that if someone needs to be deprived of their liberty in these circumstances, that person still has specifi c rights.

One of these rights is that every person deprived of their liberty under the terms of the MCA DOLS must have an RPR like you to protect their interests throughout the process.
