Person Centred Planning

All service users are given the opportunity to have their own person centred plan. The person centred plan sets out the individual’s aims and objectives and identifies the supports required to achieve these objectives. The person centred planning process involves:

  • Assessment:- Identifying the individual’s requirements by completing an information gathering questionnaire with the service user in conjunction with staff and the person’s chosen representative and wider circle of support.
  • Planning:- Setting out a comprehensive plan to achieve the goals and objectives indentified in the assessment. Identifying the supports required to maximise the person potential to have a good quality of life.
  • Implementing:- Putting in place the services to meet the care plans and action plans required to meet the person’s needs and to achieve their goals.
  • Evaluation:- Regularly assessing and documenting the outcomes of the care plans and action plans put in place and making any required changes to the plan in accordance with the service user’s wishes and changing needs

Each service user has a key worker of their choice who takes a special interest in supporting the person to achieve the goals and objectives of his/her person centred plan and to live a life of his/her choosing.
