Appointeeship


The award-winning appointeeship service from Money Carer has been provided entirely independently since we started our national social enterprise over 13 years ago in 2009. We manage the welfare benefit and daily money management responsibilities securely for thousands of clients as a trusted National Partner of the Department of Work and Pensions (DWP).

We work with more than 90 local authorities, over 200 law firms and circa 600 care providers who respect the trust and expertise we have garnered over the years. Our experience is called on every day by social workers, solicitors, family members and, of course, the vulnerable folk from all walks of life that we serve.

With innovations such as our unique banking and payments platform, Monika, or our appointee security bond, many local authorities and law firms choose to use our technology as the foundation for their own money deputyship, LPA or appointee money management services.
