Client affairs service and council contract funerals

When a resident of the borough lacks capacity, the council has a discretionary duty to deal with their financial affairs and the adult social care department can apply to become a corporate appointee to manage the person's DWP benefits. This could include the payment of utility bills and the release of funds for personal needs.

Find out more about Client affairs service and council contract funerals on the H&F Council website.
