Project update

We transmitted Report 145 - Review of the Guardianship Act 1987 to the Attorney General on 21 May 2018.

In November 2017, we released a set of draft proposals for a new Assisted Decision-Making Act to replace the Guardianship Act 1987 (NSW). Before this, we released six question papers covering a range of issues relating to guardianship, including decision-making models, medical and dental treatment and restrictive practices.
