Who Can Be A Deputy?

A relative usually acts as a deputy, but it could be a close friend or other person. If no one suitable can be found, the Court of Protection (COP) can appoint a profesional to act as the persons deputy. Local authorities or organisations such as The Money Carer Foundation can also become the Court of Protection approved deputy. Solicitors with expertise in supporting managing the finances of vulnerable people also act as deputies.
