What is the difference between a Lasting Power of Attorney and Deputyship?

A Lasting Power of Attorney is when you appoint someone yourself to make decisions on your behalf should anything unforeseen happen in future. A Deputy is someone who has been appointed by the Court to make decisions for someone who is unable to make them for themselves. This could be a close friend or relative, sometimes it is a professional.
