Powers of attorney are legal documents that let someone appoint another person who can make decisions for them or support them to make and give effect to their own decisions. Powers of attorney give choice and control.
A power of attorney lets someone else make important decisions on your behalf when you need it most. This can be a trusted relative, a friend or an organisation like State Trustees.
