I'm new here. I am looking for family/carer support and advice for those caring for adults with learning disabilities. My older brother has learning disabilities and autism and, as a family, we are his appointee for his finances (including his benefits). Does anyone know of anywhere to get support to be an appointee (e.g. somewhere you can ask questions or get advice) as it is all so confusing! I know that there are organisations that will provide an appointeeship service but, for the mean time, this isn't possible and the family will remain as appointees. It would be really great to talk to other people in a similar position. It's a very lonely and stressful situation to be in!
