Deprivation of liberty and 16-17 year olds – practice guidance (Research in Practice, 2020). The purpose of this publication is to provide guidance to practitioners on how to identify the circumstances in which young people’s care arrangements are likely to give rise to their deprivation of liberty and the action to be taken where such a deprivation of liberty arises. This guidance was written by Camilla and Alex Ruck Keene. Research in Practice has kindly permitted this briefing to be freely available via Alex’s website Mental Capacity Law and Policy.
