The Tasmanian Law Reform Institute is running consultation sessions with NDS members on the Issues Paper they have released to inform the review of The Guardianship and Administration Act 1995 (Tas) (the Act). The Issues Paper is available on the Institute’s webpage with an Easy Read Summary and Submission Template also available.

The Act deals with decision-making for people with disability who are unable to make decisions about their personal and financial matters or medical treatment. The Issues Paper examines the roles of administrators, guardians, persons responsible, the Guardianship and Administration Board, and Public Guardian in making decisions for people who are deemed unable to make their own decisions.

The Issues Paper is calling for community feedback on how current informal arrangements to support decision-making are working for Tasmanians with disability. The Paper presents options for reform, including new ways to provide people with support to make their own decisions.

The Review was commissioned by then Attorney-General, The Hon. Vanessa Goodwin MLC in December 2015 in response to developments in law and policy nationally and internationally that promote the human rights of people with disability. With the Act now more than 20 years old, this review is timely and will ensure reforms are consistent with the international human rights framework and are responsive to the needs of Tasmanians.
