increase in the number of deprivation of liberty cases



In 2014, Sir James Munby said of the Deprivation of Liberty’s that the number of disabled people being deprived of their liberty was “vastly greater” than previously assumed.  Sir James, went on to clarify that there was likely to be a “very significant” increase in the number of “deprivation of liberty'' cases Court of Protection judges would be asked to analyse and monitor.  This will have financial implication for Local authorities with responsibilities for the care of disabled people.

The Court of Protection is where issues relating to people who lack the mental capacity to make decisions are considered, in some circumstances due to lack of understanding and knowledge of the Mental Capacity Act 2005 a large percentage of people are “legally deprived of liberty”.
