AIVUK offer both face-to-face and virtual assessments in accordance with Government and Court of Protection guidance, clients' best interests and the situation with COVID-19. Decisions will be made on a case by case basis by individual AIVuk members after discussing requirements.

This hybrid approach will remain under review by individual AIVuk members and is subject to any change in Government guidance, in particular any localised restrictions which may be in force.

Please contact the member for your area if you need further information.

Who We Are


AIVuk comprises a nationwide group of experts, including current and ex-Court of Protection Visitors, who formed an alliance to work with private clients and their families, solicitors, Deputies and Attorneys in upholding and safeguarding best interests.

AIVuk members carry out a number of tasks, from individual case management of clients through to general support with Court of Protection and Office of the Public Guardian matters. They work with professional and lay Deputies, completing COP3 forms and offering general health and social welfare support as added value to the Deputy role. Members are qualified to provide mental capacity assessments, Skills Based Certificates for Lasting Powers of Attorney and are available to serve Notices. For busy professional Deputies they can provide a fee paid visits service to a set, but adaptable, format, geared to providing the information needed when accounting to the Office of the Public Guardian.
