With research highlighting that 9 out of 10 people over the age of 55 have not made arrangements or put money aside for their care needs in later life, coupled with an ageing population, the pressure already felt by financially stretched local authorities is likely to continue to escalate.
There are many vulnerable adults who do not have close family or friends to assist with the management and safeguarding of their affairs. We have found that local authorities are often stretched to deal with these cases and sometimes lack the specialist experience required.
A further challenge to local authorities is recognising the cases that require a deputy and intervening accordingly. This could require an application to the Court of Protection. Failing to intervene can not only have a devastating effect on the vulnerable adult but can also increase the burden on Social Services and care funding.
Given the challenges outlined above and from our experience of working with local authorities, we have found that cases are often being missed or at least delayed.
At Price Slater Gawne, we understand the increasing pressures faced by local authority teams and can work with you, the vulnerable individual and their support teams as a professional deputy; helping alleviate the challenges in place.
It does not cost anything to refer a Deputyship matter to Price Slater Gawne and we also offer additional free services to local authorities.
The potential benefits are:
Some local authorities may hesitate to refer out deputy cases due to concerns about costs. However, it is important to note that deputyship fees are subject to scrutiny by the Court of Protection and this includes fees charged by law firms. Price Slater Gawne operates transparently and responsibly, ensuring that our fees align with the Court’s guidelines while providing high-quality services.
At Price Slater Gawne, we pride ourselves on being specialists in Court of Protection matters. Our expertise allows us to navigate complex cases efficiently, leading to quicker resolutions and ensuring that the best interests of the individual are prioritised at all times.
At Price Slater Gawne we have expertise and experience of working with Local Authorities to ensure that they can effectively and appropriately support vulnerable people and implement financial safeguarding measures. These services are provided at no cost to the Local Authority.
