Glossary - Office of the Public Guardian

The Office of the Public Guardian (OPG) is an agency with responsibilities that extend across England and Wales. It supports the Public Guardian in the registration of Enduring Powers of Attorney (EPA) and Lasting Powers of Attorney (LPA), and the supervision of deputies appointed by the Court of Protection.

It also helps attorneys and deputies to carry out their duties, and protects people who lack the mental capacity to make decisions for themselves.
