The Office of the Public Guardian remit covers England and Wales. This is a matter for the attorneys and deputies to consider as part of their best interest considerations towards the donor/clients. It is not something OPG can insist upon. If the donor/client is disadvantaged, e.g. through lack of access to healthcare and benefits or Local Authority support because of the failure to apply for settled status, then this may be an issue for OPG to consider when determining whether decisions are being made in the best interest of the donor/client. OPG will review its guidance as appropriate.
