Rights and freedoms are the basic human rights every person should have for their whole life. Like fairness and being able to choose to do the things they want.

A deprivation of liberty is when someone loses some of their rights and freedoms. There are laws to protect these people.

The law is changing and lots of people who used to be protected are no longer going to be. This is called the Liberty Protection Safeguards (LPS).
