Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards (DOLS)
12 Feb 2016
There has recently been some confusion from delegates about which MCA/DOLS course is most appropriate for them to attend. We have pulled all the training together in the attached document and identified the target audience for each course. We hope this will help in signposting delegates to the appropriate course.
