Guardianship and Administration Board

 Quick Summary

The Guardianship and Administration Board is an independent body which has the authority to appoint guardians or administrators to help adults with disabilities. A guardian is a person who has the legal power to make important decisions on another person’s behalf. The Guardianship and Administration Board can appoint the Public Guardian, or another adult such as a family member or friend. The Board assesses the applications of guardians to make sure they are suitable and able to be a guardian. They may also give consent to medical and dental treatment, or order statutory wills in cases where people cannot make decisions for themselves, or have no guardian or person responsible appointed.
