Supporting lay deputies

Lay Deputies are family members or friends of individuals who do not have the capacity to manage their own affairs and who have agreed to become a ‘deputy’ appointed by the Court of Protection.  See recommendations from our clients here.

Deputies have a wide range of responsibilities, often in addition to helping to care for the person who has lost capacity. Our caring and experienced team offer a personal service to lay Deputies, helping them with a range of legal, financial and care tasks.
