Women who has applied for deputyship for her mother through the court of protection

Deputy requirements.

To apply to become someone’s deputy, you must meet two strict requirements, which are:

  1. You’re over the age of 18
  2. You’re a person (not a company, for example)

Deputies are usually close friends or relatives of the person who needs assistance in making decisions.
