    Hello @JadeC82

    Welcome back to the community, I hope you are well.

    You could consider becoming your daughter's appointee, see more information about this on the Gov.uk website. 

    Alternatively, you could just be there as a presence to help her through the process and provide support when needed. Or your daughter could go through Advice Local, CAB or your local Welfare Rights to seek professional help with the process.
