Association of Public Authority Deputies

APAD Conference Forum Q&A’s

Dear APAD members,

Following our online Conference in April, we have now created a forum on the website with several of the questions that members raised on the day.

We have grouped questions under various topic headings to make it easier for you to review questions and responses in areas of particular interest to you.

The Committee would ask that we all continue the conversation around these key issues affecting how we manage our client’s property and finance and share good practice and ideas.

I will be raising a few of our more pertinent questions directly with Senior Judge Hilder at the Court of Protection and Nick Goodwin of the Office of the Public Guardian for their specific comments / feedback. The questions and any response we receive will be shared with members via the APAD website.

Best Wishes

Yvonne Mitchell

Co-Chair -APAD Committee


A ‘Distance Learning’ option is now available for APAD Accredited learning.

Due to the restrictions under the pandemic we have been unable to offer places on the existing APAD Corporate Deputyship Accreditation programme which includes face-to-face workshops. As the situation continues to be uncertain your committee has redeveloped this programme and is now pleased to be able to offer the same learning opportunity at a distance.
