Enduring Guardianship- NSW
An Enduring Guardianship is a legal document governed by The Guardianship Act 1987 (NSW) and The Guardianship Regulation 2016 (NSW) that allows you to appoint a person to make decisions on your behalf about your health and lifestyle. For example, your Enduring Guardian may make decisions in regard to where you live and the personal services you receive, including general healthcare treatments. However, they cannot make financial and legal decisions on your behalf (see Power of Attorney). Your Enduring Guardian only starts making decisions when you lose decision-making abilities due to illness, injury or disability which may be temporary or permanent.
The format of our Enduring Guardianship is in line with the form prescribed by the NSW Government. Our form allows you to appoint up to three Enduring Guardians and one substitute Enduring Guardian.
