More about Human Rights Claims for the Care Sector

Issues around capacity, best interests, and mental health, paired with the multi-agency involvement with someone requiring such considerations are fraught with challenges. Our specialist team can support you with advice and representation should it be required. Forbes' dedicated Deprivations of Liberty specialists will provide straightforward and timely advice in respect of any such claims

We regularly advise clients regarding Deprivations of Liberty claims arising from matters such as:

  • Adults with severe learning difficulties requiring 24-hour care in a residential setting.

  • Adults with a Dementia diagnosis, both in respect of their ongoing care and/or regarding their placement into residential care from their own home.

  • Adults residing in a residential care setting who have previously been Sectioned in accordance with the Mental Health Act.

  • Deprivations of liberty involving 16/17-year-olds who lack capacity to consent to the arrangements and where they are under continuous supervision and control and are not free to leave the residential setting in which they have been placed.
