About this brochure

In Victoria, there are a number of laws which enable people with cognitive disabilities to appoint or nominate someone to assist them to make decisions.

As a supporter, legal recognition gives you authority to advocate alongside the person in creating decision opportunities, exploring their will and preferences, and implementing their decisions. It can also resolve the problems created by concerns about privacy of information when the person interacts with hospitals, banks, disability organisations, utility providers and government agencies.
