General Advocacy Services
The Office of the Public Advocate works to promote and protect the human rights of Western Australian adults with decision-making disabilities and to reduce their risk of exploitation and abuse.
If you are worried about an adult who has a decision-making disability and think they may need a guardian or administrator, you can contact the Office of the Public Advocate’s Telephone Advisory Service on 1300 858 455.
You can plan for your future and choose who would have the legal power to make decisions on your behalf if you lost capacity by completing an Enduring Power of Attorney form (for property and financial decisions) and an Enduring Power of Guardianship form (for personal, lifestyle and treatment decisions).
