Office of the Public Guardian
The Office of the Public Guardian (OPG) is the body in England and Wales responsible for protecting the assets and financial affairs of people who lack mental capacity, whether through dementia, traumatic injury or some other circumstance. It is an executive agency working on behalf of the Ministry of Justice and was created in accordance with the Mental Capacity Act 2005.
It is important to contact a solicitor for wills if you require help from the Office of the Public Guardian with any of issues that fall under the organisation's remit. According to GOV.UK these include the following:
- Taking action where there are concerns about an attorney or deputy
- Registering lasting and enduring powers of attorney, so that people can choose who they want to make decisions for them
- Maintaining the public register of deputies and people who have been given lasting and enduring powers of attorney
