We provide permanent and secure Trustee, Guardianship and Administration services to the ACT community. By legislation enacted in 2016, the former offices of the Public Trustee for the ACT and the Guardianship Unit of the Public Advocate of the ACT became merged as the Public Trustee and Guardian with effect from 1 April 2016.
The ACT Official Visitor's Scheme aims to safeguard standards of care and advocate for the rights and dignity of people.
The Going Public February 2016 issue deals with upcoming events with a special focus on Philanthropy and Your Will.
Will-making is a specialised task with complex financial, legal and tax implications that should be considered to ensure that your estate is distributed as you wish. The Public Trustee and Guardian can prepare your Will only where nominated as the Executor to administer your estate.
