Can the Court of Protection Recommend a Deputy?

Yes – if nobody is willing or able to apply, even though there is evidence of medical incapacity and a client has property and belongings which need a deputy to look after, then the Court of Protection may consider appointing a deputy from an approved panel. The Court of Protection is presently changing its panel membership to include more organisations from the third sector such as social enterprises and charities.
