    Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards

    This session explores the Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards (DoLS) to help you understand what they are, their aim and purpose.

    The word order 'disabled children and young people' is used in this and all the Disability Matters sessions. This is because disabling factors are most often external to the person and are therefore something that everyone in society can do something about.
