Supported Decision-Making Guidelines

Our Supported decision-making framework, launched in October 2023, represented a significant change aimed at enhancing the lives of individuals with impaired decision-making abilities.

What is Supported Decision-Making?

Supported decision-making is an empowering approach to assist individuals with impaired decision-making abilities in actively participating in decisions that affect their lives. 

Best Practice framework to align with the new Guardianship and Administration Amendment Act 2023:

The Public Trustee collaborated with Australia’s leading experts in the field to develop a best practice framework to comply with the new legislative requirements. The new Guardianship and Administration Amendment Act 2023, passed by the Tasmanian Parliament in September 2023, is set to take effect within the next 12 months.
