The Office of Public Guardian is closed during the COVID-19 pandemic, they are only dealing with critical PoA applications such as cases where there is a terminal illness, in these rare cases OPG have requested that this is emailed.
As a result VOCAL has temporarily suspended new PoA appointments, we are offering remote support in submitting critical PoA applications and will contact carers with regular PoA requests once the situation changes
VOCAL normally offers carers free monthly appointments with an independent advisor, to support them to write and register a Power of Attorney document.
This free service should replace the need to visit a solicitor.
