Under the current Government restrictions AIVuk members are able to offer face to face assessments, subject to social distancing rules being observed.

We continue to be able to offer remote assessments and these will always be considered in the first instance, with face to face assessments only being undertaken where it is not practicable or appropriate for an assessment to be undertaken remotely. The requirement for PPE can be discussed when making an appointment.

This will remain under review by individual AIVuk members and is subject to any change in Government guidance, in particular any localised restrictions which may be in force.

Please contact the relevant Visitor with any queries you may have.

Who We Are

The AIVuk comprises a nationwide group of experts, including current and ex-Court of Protection Visitors, who formed an alliance to work with private clients and their families, solicitors, Deputies and Attorneys in upholding and safeguarding best interests.

New Members

Due to the relocation of members and forthcoming retirements over the coming months AIVuk will be seeking new members to cover the following areas:

  • Cumbria and the Lake District
  • Wales
  • The West Midlands
  • The M1 corridor between London and Leicester

If you have the knowledge, experience and skills required to deliver the broad range of services offered by the AIVuk and wish to be considered for AIVuk membership, please indicating which of the above areas, or parts of them, you could cover.


Visitors carry out a number of tasks, from individual case management of clients through to general support with Court of Protection and Office of the Public Guardian matters. They work with professional and lay Deputies. They offer general health and social welfare support as added value to the Deputy role. They are qualified to provide mental capacity assessments, Skills Based Certificates for Lasting Powers of Attorney and are available to serve Notices. For busy professional Deputies they can provide a fee paid visits service to a set, but adaptable, format, geared to providing the information needed when accounting to the Office of the Public Guardian.

How We Work

Members pool their extensive knowledge and resources to provide expertise in working with elderly and disabled people. They hold a range of professional qualifications and include social workers and nurses and have a comprehensive knowledge of Court of Protection and Office of the Public Guardian procedures and of the health and social welfare context of clients.
