Detail

The Office of the Public Guardian (OPG) asked Ipsos MORI to look into what the public understands about lasting powers of attorney (LPAs) and why people do or don’t make them.

The key findings of the report are illustrated by a separate infographic.

OPG aims to increase the number of LPAs and reduce the need for deputyships for people who have lost mental capacity.
