Everyone has the right to make their own decisions about the things that affect them.
In Victoria, you can choose someone to support you to make your own decisions. The information in this guide relates to the law in Victoria. If you are making appointments to operate in other states, territories or countries, refer to resources from those jurisdictions for information, as the legislative requirements vary. Personal stories are included in this guide to illustrate choices available to you. The personal stories are hypothetical. Any resemblance to any person is entirely coincidental.
