In recent years the Public Advocate’s work in the ‘justice and human rights’ field for Queenslanders with impaired decision-making ability has had a sharpened focus. This has incorporated a review of the fees, charges and practices of an agency that is part of the guardianship and administration system (The Public Trustee), monitoring the introduction of human rights legislation in Queensland, and advocating for increased recognition of the rights of people with impaired decision-making ability to be supported to make their own decisions.
