What does the Northern Territory Civil and Administrative Tribunal do?
The Northern Territory Civil and Administrative Tribunal (NTCAT) is responsible for hearing all adult guardianship matters in the Northern Territory. Once an application for guardianship is submitted to the NTCAT the member will look at all the information provided and make a guardianship order to suit the adult’s situation. The order will say what decisions the guardian is authorised to make.
The NTCAT can appoint a person aged 18 or over, the Public Guardian, the Public Trustee, or a combination of these.
