The Carer Gateway

As a carer of a person with intellectual disability you may be required to manage their legal responsibilities. This can include guardianship or power of attorney. Understanding your legal responsibilities is important.

As a carer, you too have legal rights. You rights focus on your role as a carer and how you should be treated.

The Carer Gateway offers help, and advice and information to help carers understand legal matters relating to their caring role.
