Appointee and Court Deputy

Appointee and Court Deputy Service

The Appointee and Court Deputy Service can look after the finances of anyone who finds it difficult to manage their affairs because, for example, of dementia, learning disability or mental illness. Their GP or consultant must provide medical evidence to confirm they have this difficulty.

The person may be living in their own home, or in a care home or care home with nursing. As Appointee, we will arrange to receive their income from the Department of Work and Pensions and pay their bills. If the person has capital and / or owns their own home, we will apply to the Office of the Public Guardian to act as Court Deputy to enable us to pay their bills and deal with any other matters relating to finance.
