Guardianship and administration are a last resort, if there is no less restrictive alternative to protect and promote the human rights of an adult with disability.
Guardianship is not necessarily required simply because a person has a disability.
This online webinar introduces the key concepts and changes in the Act.
Any adult can make an application to the VCAT Guardianship List for a guardianship or administration order.
While OPA staff collect and provide information, it is VCAT that decides whether a guardian or administrator is needed.
These Deeds relate to the provision of support services and include matters that are within the authority of the guardian to agree to on behalf of the represented person.
