Power of Attorney Day 2023

Date of Event:    November 23, 2023

Have you ever considered what would happen to your personal and financial affairs should you lose the capacity to make your own decisions through illness or injury?

As part of Power of Attorney Day 2023, which falls this year on Thursday 23 November, individuals and families across North Ayrshire are being urged to arrange Power of Attorney over loved ones in a bid to protect their wishes if the worst should happen.

Power of Attorney (PoA) is a legal document allowing a nominated person of authority to act or make decisions on a family member or friend’s behalf.

Having a PoA enables you plan what you want another person to do for you in the future, should you become incapable of making decisions affecting your own affairs.
