Administration & Guardianship

About this page

This section provides information about these two types of appointments.

Guardianship is the appointment of a person (a ‘guardian’) to make decisions for an adult with a disability (the ‘represented person’) when they are unable to do so. 

Administration is the appointment of a person (an ‘administrator’) to make financial and legal decisions for an adult with a disability (the ‘represented person’) when they are unable to do so.
