NCAT's Guardianship Division makes decisions about people who have a decision making disability.
The Guardianship Division determines applications about adults who are incapable of making their own decisions and who may require a legally appointed substitute decision maker.
Applications to the Guardianship Division include:
Applications must be about people who are in NSW or have property or other financial assets in NSW.
Guardianship Act 1987 sets out the limits of its responsibilities and functions and the principles to be applied when making decisions.
