Power of Attorney - do you have one?

If you can't make decisions for yourself, who will?

Anyone can be affected at any stage of life to find themselves suddenly incapacitated by an unforeseen illness, accident or other debilitating event. Without a Power of Attorney (PoA) in place, your family, friends or partner have no legal rights to direct your welfare, or step in to oversee your financial or welfare affairs.

Power of Attorney isn’t just for older or unwell people - anyone over 16 years of age, with capacity, is able to register a Power of Attorney.
