Article 5 of the Human Rights Act states: "Everyone has the right to liberty and security of person. No one shall be deprived of his or her liberty (unless) in accordance with a procedure prescribed in law.”

The Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards 2009 (DoLS) is a procedure prescribed in law when a person who lacks mental capacity to consent to their care or treatment is being deprived of their liberty in a care home or hospital in order to keep them safe from harm. The procedure involves having the arrangements independently assessed to ensure they are in the best interests of the individual concerned.

This report provides the findings from the Mental Capacity Act 2005, Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards (DoLS) data collection for the period 1 April 2017 to 31 March 2018. It provides analysis of all DoLS applications that were active at any stage during the period. Data were provided by the 152 Councils with Adult Social Services Responsibility (CASSRs) during spring 2018.

Key findings
  • There were 227,400 applications for DoLS received during 2017-18, with almost three quarters relating to people aged 75 and over. This represents an increase of 4.7% on 2016-17 although the rate of increase is slowing compared to previous years.
  • There were more DoLS applications received than were completed (181,785) in 2017-18. The number of DoLS applications that were completed increased by 19.6% from 151,970 in 2016-17. The proportion of these that were granted was 61.1% in 2017-18.
  • The reported number of cases that were not completed as at year end was 125,630. Of these just under 40% (48,555) were received prior to 1 April 2017.
  • Analysis of the 2017-18 local authority data again shows a wide range of variation across the country in the volumes of DoLS applications, their outcomes and how they were administered.

This official statistics report provides the findings from the Mental Capacity Act 2005, Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards (DoLS) data collection for the period 1 April 2015 to 31 March 2016.

Key findings
  • Overall, 195,840 DoLS applications were reported as having been received by councils during 2015-16. This is the most since the DoLS were introduced in 2009 and represents 454 DoLS applications received per 100,000 adults in England.
  • As shown in the chart below, following a period of relative stability during 2013-14 (prior to the 2014 Supreme Court judgment and where the total number of applications received was 13,715), a period of month-on-month growth occurred during 2014-15. This peaked with 14,930 applications received in March 2015, before monthly figures look to have restabilised at just above this level throughout 2015-16.
