A Person Centred Plan is a way of helping you work out what you want now and in the future.

What is a Person Centred Plan?

my-planPerson centred planning will support you to make choices and changes in your life.

A Person Centred Plan is about you. You are the most important person in the plan.

A Person Centred Plan could be for small or big changes you want to make in your life.

You will decide who you want to support you to make your plan happen. Family, friends, and professionals.

How the information is gathered to make a Person Centred Plan

getting-to-know-youWe will meet with you and talk about what is important to you. We can help you decide what you would like to include in your plan to help you move forward.

We then start to make your plan and as it is personal to you, it can contain pictures, photos, and symbols etc. of your own choice. This will give those looking at the plan a bigger picture of who you are.

Your facilitator will help you put this together and put the information you have discussed into your plan so that everyone can read it easily.

What will happen during my plan?

how we do it

  • Getting to Know you – Your facilitator will meet up with you and any other people you want involved in your plan.  We will spend time with you and talk about what is important to you and what you want to do in the future. These meetings could be anywhere you want them to be.
  • Putting the plan into action – After the getting to know you time, we will arrange a big meeting with you, inviting all the people you want involved in your plan, to put the plan into action.

What is our role in Person Centred Planning?
