Further information

Following the Supreme Court ruling in 2014, and the subsequent identification of a significant number of cases of Deprivation of Liberty in Community settings, a dedicated Community Deprivation of Liberty (DoL) team will be established to progress these cases. There are currently approximately 600 Stockton-on-Tees clients who have been identified as requiring authorisation of the Community DoL through the Court of Protection.

An opportunity has therefore arisen for a Community Deprivation of Liberty (DoL) Manager to oversee the progression of cases where Stockton-on-Tees clients are considered to be deprived of their liberty in community settings.

Responsibilities will include providing support to the Social Work and specialist teams within the Council to identify cases where a community DoL may be occurring, and to ensure that priority cases are progressed. You will oversee the completion of the necessary assessments and collation of information to ensure that the necessary paperwork is submitted in a timely manner. You will work closely with the Council’s Legal Service, and liaise with clients and their family members, as well as teams within and outside of the Council. You will be supported by, and provide line-management to, Community DoL Support Officers.

You will develop clear systems and processes to ensure management of the process, and to ensure that the Council is compliant with the legislation for Community DoL cases.
