Justice and human rights

In recent years the Public Advocate’s work in the ‘justice and human rights’ field for Queenslanders with impaired decision-making ability has incorporated a number of reviews and reports. Most recently, the Public Advocate has released the first volume of a two volume report on adult safeguarding in Queensland and a review of confidentiality provisions in Queensland's guardianship system.

In 2021 the Public Advocate completed a review of the fees, charges and practices of an agency that is part of the guardianship and administration system (The Public Trustee), which was tabled in the Queensland Parliament. The implementation of the reform recommendations included in this report are being monitored by the Public Advocate on a regular basis.
