These changes should bring some welcome clarity to what was an unnecessarily complex previous system of different levels.
Supervision, support and visits As a deputy, you’ll be supervised by the Office of the Public Guardian (OPG). They’re authorised to contact you or visit you to check you’re being an effective deputy. They can also give you advice and support. How you’ll be supervised When you’re appointed as a deputy you’ll be assessed by OPG to decide how much supervision and support you need. Most deputies get a ‘general’ level of supervision. If you’re a property and affairs deputy managing less than £21,000, you’ll only get ‘minimal’ supervision. You’ll pay a lower fee and you may not have to write a report each year.
