Participation of the Proposed Represented Person – Draft Best Practice Guidelines
The Law Council strongly supports the Participation of the Proposed Represented Person Draft Best Practice Guidelines.
As noted in the Australian Guardianship and Administrative Council’s (AGAC) accompanying Issues Paper,1 although the Guidelines arose in the context of elder abuse, they may assist tribunals in maximising the participation of all people for whom guardianship and related applications are made.
The Law Council makes suggestions for additional points to be incorporated into the Guidelines, some of which are addressed in the Issues Paper but not fully reflected in the Guidelines.
