The Office of the Public Guardian is carefully monitoring official public health advice regarding COVID-19 and is taking steps to ensure the wellbeing of represented adults, stakeholders and staff. 

The Office of the Public Guardian is continuing to provide guardianship services to the Northern Territory during this time. Our Darwin office will be closed during the current lockdown period with staff delivering services via telephone and email from remote locations. Our Alice Springs office remains open.

Our contact details remain 1800 810 979 or via email at public.guardian@nt.gov.au. Telephone calls and emails continue to be received and responded to with urgent matters being prioritised.

As this continues to be a rapidly developing situation we will keep people informed of any service changes via notices on our public website. 

The Office of the Public Guardian is taking these measures to prioritise the health, safety and welfare of the community of the Northern Territory.
