WE at the Legal Services Commission are keen to ensure that people who care for someone else have rights and access to advice.

We produce a leaflet called "Dealing with someone else's affairs", which is part of a series of legal information leaflets produced by Community Legal Service Direct, designed to ensure that people know their rights. The leaflet describes the arrangements that must be made to help with, or take over, the management of someone else's affairs.

It is written for relatives, friends and carers of people who can no longer cope on their own, but it may also be useful for people who want to prepare for a time when they may no longer be able to handle their affairs.

The leaflet is available online at www.clsdirect.org.uk or from the Citizens Advice Bureau.
