A 'Court of Protection Deputyship' is where a specialist court has elected an individual to stand as someones deputy. This deputy then can make decisions on behalf of that person, including but not limited to medical welfare, finances and property.

A deputy can also take action on setting-up Lasting Powers of Attorney (LPA) and Enduring Powers of Attorney (EPA) if required.

This service is usually required when Lasting Powers of Attorney (LPA) or Enduring Powers of Attorney (EPA) have not been prepared and an individual needs someone (a deputy) to represent or make decisions on their behalf. A deputy can then take action on setting-up LPAs and EPAs if required.
