It is important to remember that when it comes to selling services, you must deliver on your promises.

Three professional deputies – Sheree Green, Alex Elphinston and Donna Holmes – have been appointed to the panel, with Gill Browne appointed to the panel reserve. As panel deputies, they will be appointed by the Court if a person does not have the mental capacity to make their own decisions, and when no one else, such as a family member, is willing or able to act.
Supported by dedicated case workers and finance officers, the deputy’s role is to assist and empower the individual to make as many decisions for themselves as possible. If the person cannot make a specific decision, then the deputy must step in and make that decision in the person’s “best interests”.
Sheree Green, Court of Protection Lead at ACS, said, “We are delighted to have been appointed to the Panel and have the opportunity to bring our teamwork and expertise to bear in supporting people requiring a panel deputy.
We look forward to working with the Office of the Public Guardian and the Court to champion each person’s right to make their own decisions wherever possible, working creatively, carefully and collaboratively to support the individual in achieving their own personal goals and living as rich and satisfying a life as possible”.
