Full Social Worker Assessment
The role of professional Deputy or Attorney needs to be taken seriously. The Mental Capacity Act and the Code of Practice sets out a professional deputy/attorney’s responsibilities, but the Office of the Public Guardian has gone further by releasing the Professional Deputy Standards 2017. The Office of the Public Guardian has published a checklist to support the Deputy Standards and will use their annual visits to ensure the standards are being met.
Our social workers have created a ‘Full Social Worker Assessment’, which seeks to address the Deputy Standards and ensure that your client’s affairs are being managed in accordance with the Office of Public Guardian standards.
