The Office of the Public Guardian has issued new guidance on what they can do to help if there are concerns of abuse or neglect under a lasting power of attorney, enduring power of attorney or deputy court order. 

The guidance deals with a range of different topics, including:

  1. What sort of concerns they can help with;
  2. How to report a concern;
  3. What happens during an investigation;
  4. How long an investigation takes;
  5. What happens at the end of an investigation; and
  6. Who we tell about the outcome of an investigation.

This guidance applies to England and Wales only.
