Safe Keeping

Subtitle A Guide to Managing the Affairs of Missing Persons

This project facilitated the implementation and utilisation of the new Guardianship and Administration Act 2010 to ensure that family and friends of missing persons can access accurate and useful information about their legal options regarding administration of the missing person’s affairs.

It will also ensure that the staff at key agencies helping families and friends of missing persons (eg missing person’s support groups, Victoria Police and VCAT) are informed about the new options available.

The guide assists families and friends of missing persons to manage the financial and legal difficulties created when a loved one goes missing.
