Harrow CCG v IPJ and others

Mental health – Court of Protection. The applicant (HCCG) proposed an extensive package of care for AJ (a 24-year-old man with autism and learning disabilities) at his family home, with most of the financial arrangements managed by a third party broker. The Court of Protection held that, notwithstanding the dissatisfaction of AJ's parents, HCCG's proposals were in AJ's best interests, and that, while the arrangements would include the deprivation of AJ's liberty, it was appropriate to authorise that for a review period of 12 months.
