    Judge dashes local authority hopes of funding for DoLS

    23.05.17 Councils’ hopes of further funding from the government to clear the backlog of deprivation of liberty safeguards (DoLS) applications have been dealt another blow in the high court.
    Four councils – Liverpool, Nottinghamshire, Richmond and Shropshire - lost their fight in the high court against the government when Mr Justice Garnham rejected their argument that health secretary Jeremy Hunt’s failure to provide adequate funding created an “unacceptable risk of illegality.” According to the Community Care website, the judge said the evidence submitted “did not come close” to proving that any of the councils were unable to meet the costs of performing their DoLS duties.

    “We” statements champion rights and mark Dementia Awareness Week

    22.05.17 To mark Dementia Awareness Week last week a new set of Dementia Statements have been published by the Dementia Action Alliance (DAA) and Alzheimer’s Society, replacing the original “I” statements and championing the rights of people living with dementia.
    The five revised statements are now “We” statements, for example, “We have the right to be recognised as who we are, to make choices about our lives including taking risks, and to contribute to society.” The DAA said the new statements had been developed with people living with dementia, adding: “Grounded in human rights law, they are a rallying call to all of us to improve the lives of people with dementia and to recognise that they shouldn’t be treated differently because of their diagnosis.” The DAA/Alzheimer’s Society initiative was part of a busy week of activities and events to mark Dementia Awareness Week (DAW).
