Power of Attorney - Office of the Public Guardian (OPG)

The OPG is an agency with responsibilities that extend across England and Wales (separate arrangements exist for Scotland and NI). It supports the Public Guardian in the registration of Enduring Powers of Attorney (EPA) and Lasting Powers of Attorney (LPA), and the supervision of deputies appointed by the Court of Protection.

It works closely with other public organisations to ensure that any allegations of abuse are fully investigated and acted on. The OPG also has responsibility for mental capacity policy, and provides guidance to public, legal and health professionals.

Flying Scholarships for Disabled

Flying Scholarships for Disabled People (FSDP), previously known as Flying Scholarships for the Disabled (FSD), is a charity that provides a ‘once in a lifetime’ challenge for disabled people to help them realise their abilities through the medium of learning to fly.

Whilst not a direct objective of the scheme most scholars do fly solo (or ‘ghosted’ solo) by the end of their training programme and some go on to achieve their Private Pilot’s Licence.
