National Standards of Public Guardianship 2016
National Standards of Public Guardianship were first introduced by the Australian Guardianship and Administration Council (AGAC) in 2001. The intention of these standards is to provide the minimum expectations of staff of Offices of the Public Guardian and Offices of the Public Advocate when acting as legal decision makers on behalf of people with decision-making disabilities. This 2016 edition further develops the standards in the context of new safeguarding strategies being developed to uphold the right to safety and freedom from exploitation of people with disabilities as outlined in Article 16 of the UNCRPD.
