Further Information:

Individuals are screened following a court request for a DTTO assessment. The court report writer and the SSW of the DTTO team consult and agree suitability. If the person is suitable then the court will defer the matter for further assessment. If the person is unsuitable at screening stag the court is notified via the court report.
