How to find out if someone is a decision-making representative?

When the court appoints a decision-making representative, it lets us know and sends us a copy of the decision-making representation order.

We keep a register of decision-making representation orders.

Certain people and organisations, like banks, lawyers and doctors, can search this register. Family members and carers may also ask to search to register if they have a good reason to do so. We can confirm that an order is in place. We can also give them a certified copy of the order.
