Enduring guardianship

Part 5 of the Guardianship and Administration Act 1995 enables a person to appoint another person or persons to make lifestyle decisions for them in the event that they are no longer capable of making those decisions.

By appointing your own enduring guardian before losing mental capacity, you decide who will be your guardian and how you want decisions made for you.

Your appointed guardian must act in accordance with the general principles laid down in the Act and in a number of important respects is subject to direction by the Board.
