Lorraine Currie

MCA and DoLS Manager, Shropshire Council

Lorraine Currie is the MCA Professional Lead for a local Authority and a Visiting Lecturer at Wolverhampton and Keele Universities.

Lorraine Chairs the West Midlands Region and the National DoLS Leads groups. She also carries out MCA Consultancy work which to date has mainly been for ADASS and the LGA including leading the review of DoLS Forms and National Guidance for Form 3.

Outside of work Lorraine lives in North Shropshire and enjoys peace and quiet, reading and watching meaningless TV to unwind. Lorraine is also engaged in providing support to her daughter following an accident in 2010. Although this was a family tragedy it has contributed to a greater understanding of the need for personalised care and responsive services.
