1. Management of personal property and financial affairs

When service users, become mentally incapacitated in some way, they will need assistance in managing their property and financial affairs. Sufficient support is often provided by family, friends or care workers, but when nobody is willing, able or suitable to take on the role, the Borough's Deputy and Appointeeship team may take on the work either by way of Court of Protection Deputyship or Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) Appointeeship. Please note that referrals can only be made through Social Service care managers.
