The OPG is an agency with responsibilities that extend across England and Wales (separate arrangements exist for Scotland and for Northern Ireland).

It supports the Public Guardian in the registration of Enduring Powers of Attorney (EPA) and Lasting Powers of Attorney (LPA), and the supervision of deputies appointed by the Court of Protection.

It also helps attorneys and deputies to carry out their duties, and protects people who lack the mental capacity to make decisions for themselves.

It works closely with other organisations to ensure that any allegations of abuse are fully investigated and acted on.

The OPG also has responsibility for mental capacity policy, and provides guidance to public, legal and health professionals.

The OPG produces two newsletters:

  • OPG Intouch for court-appointed deputies
  • MCA Update for stakeholders, on Mental Capacity Act policy.

To sign up to the newsletters, please email the OPG.

Deputy Support Group

The Spring 2012 edition of the InTouch magazine for Deputies made reference to a Deputy Support Group. Following recent changes to the ways in which we work with and support Deputies, including ‘first contact’ phone calls and conferences for new Deputies, the Deputy Support Group was closed down at the end of March 2012.

If you need any guidance or support regarding your Deputyship, please call our helpline on 0300 456 0300 and we will be glad to help.

The OPG would like to thank all the members of the Deputy Support Group for the time and expertise they have given voluntarily over the last few years to support their fellow Deputies.
