The New South Wales Government
is looking into the law about Guardianship in New South
Wales. This law says someone can be chosen to make
decisions for you if you cannot make decisions on your own.
We have now released the sixth and final Question Paper in our
review of Guardianship Law. Question Paper 6 looks at the
remaining issues that the other Question Papers did not cover, but
we still want to know what you think about these issues.
Some of the topics covered include: how our Guardianship laws
interact with Commonwealth laws like the National Disability Insurance
Scheme; how to accommodate the needs of Aboriginal people and
people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds; and
whether the language of the law is outdated. You can find more information
about these and other topics in Question Paper 6. This document
is on our website. It is also available in
an easy read version. We would like to hear about your
experience of these topics. We would like to hear what you
think about changing the law. To tell us what you think you
can fill out the survey on our website. You can call us.
Or you can write to us. We look forward to
hearing from you.
