  • Provide members of the public the opportunity to learn more about protecting their affairs and assets through Powers of Attorney
  • Raise awareness about legislative requirements, safeguarding and protecting the vulnerable through Deputy Orders
  • Inform the public about planning in advance through appointing Lasting Powers of Attorney, General Powers of Attorney and drafting of Wills.
