To coincide with the launch of the Office of the Public Guardian, we carried out extensive research and produced ‘Empowering You’, a report which examines people’s understanding of mental capacity issues.

We were surprised to see that more than half of people aged 65 and over (59 percent) have not made preparations for how they and their finances should be looked after if they became unable to look after them themselves, for more information please see the Press Release and Report.
