During the current crisis AIVuk has carefully considered the implications of face-to-face visits and in accordance with government restrictions we are unfortunately unable to offer this service at present.

However the Court of Protection has encouraged the creative use of alternatives in its work, including the use of video conferencing, and AIVuk will follow this example for interviews and assessments when appropriate. This can be reviewed on a case by case basis.

Please contact the relevant Visitor to discuss any queries you may have.
