​Public consultations


Should a person be able to make decisions for someone else? Or should people be supported to make their own decisions? If you are a guardian or carer, we want to hear your views on how the guardianship system is working and whether it needs to be changed. Public consultations will be held in ​Sydney on 30 May from 2pm-4pm and Parramatta on 1 June 2017 from 5pm-7pm.

Topics for discussion may include:

  • whether NSW should move from a system of substitute decision-making to supported decision-making
  • whether the law should acknowledge carers and informal supporters
  • guardianship arrangements under the NDIS, and
  • who can consent to medical treatment and restrictive practices on someone else's behalf.

To register your interest, please email or call 8346 1284.​ We will provide you with venue details after you register.
