Office of the Public Guardian

The Office of the Public Guardian (OPG) has a range of functions under the Adults with Incapacity (Scotland) Act. In particular the OPG provides information advice and guidance with regard to Powers of Attorney; Access to Funds; Guardianship and Intervention Orders; and investigations.

There are many partners and other professionals involved in working with each procedure of the Act and if customers are unclear about who to contact, they may wish to contact the OPG in the first instance.  The Public Guardians Office will deal with an issue if they are accountable and otherwise they will advise customers of the relevant organisation or person and how to contact them.
