Deprivation of Liberty in Community Settings
NB: the existing system, sometimes called “Community DoLS”, will continue to operate until at least September 2021. It is planned to overlap with the new system, the Liberty Protection Safeguards, from October 2020.
To give participants an overall understanding of how Deprivation of Liberty applies in community settings (ie outside of care homes and hospitals).
Anyone working in a community health or social care setting (eg supported living, sheltered housing, Shared Lives etc). We strongly recommend the attendance of senior staff, rather than 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.
