Deprivation of Liberty for Staff working with Children, Families or Young People
NB: the existing deprivation of liberty system will continue to operate until at least September 2021. It is planned to overlap with the new system, the Liberty Protection Safeguards (LPS), from October 2020.
To give participants an overall understanding of how the concept of Deprivation of Liberty applies to their work with children, families or young people. NB: strictly speaking the “Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards” or “DoLS”, only apply to people aged 18 and above who are in hospital, or who are in nursing/residential care. That is why we have used the term “Deprivation of Liberty” in the title here, rather than “Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards”.
Anyone working in a health or social care setting with children, families or young people. We strongly recommend the attendance of senior staff, rather than just junior ones. It would also make sense for all participants to have a good understanding of the Mental Capacity Act 2005 prior to attending this training.
Venue & duration
Your own training room. A full day is certainly best. We could squeeze the training into a half day if you wish, but you would have to tell us what to cover, and what to leave out.
