DEPRIVATION OF LIBERTY AND SAFEGUARDING SERVICE (DoLS)
We provide information, advice and guidance to disabled people in Leicester City.
The Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards are part of the Mental Capacity Act 2005.
The safeguards aim to ensure that people in care settings are looked after in a way that does not inappropriately restrict their freedom.
Our Paid Persons Representatives (PPRs) go all over Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland ensuring people are not overly restricted, particular conditions are adhered to and people on a DoLS are informed of their legal right to appeal their current arrangements.
