ADASS has produced two quick guides. One on Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards (DoLS) and another on Deprivation of Liberty Orders (also known as Community DoLS or Judicial Appointments)  

They include examples and cover the following areas:

  • What does deprivation of liberty mean?
  • What does this mean in practice?
  • How does it affect my family member or my friend?
