In addition to endorsing the DNF’s response, NCOSS takes this opportunity to highlight key points raised in the Question Papers as they relate to older people. We support:.

  • the establishment of an Office of the Public Advocate, with powers to investigate cases of abuse, neglect and exploitation;
  • greater clarity in the 'person responsible' hierarchy;
  • advance care directives being recognised and legislated for in the Guardianship Act to provide greater certainty about their operation; and
  • explicit regulation of restrictive practices in the Guardianship Act.
