22 Person Centred Planning (PCP) A way of helping people to think about what they want now and in the future. Supporting people to plan their lives, work towards their goals, and get the right support. A collection of tools, resources and approaches based on shared values used to plan with a person, not for them. Planning should build upon the person’s circle of support and involve all the people who are important in the persons’ life.

23 Principles of PCP The person is at the centre. Family and friends are partners in planning Planning is an on-going process Plans focus on gifts, capacities and solutions and should look to the future Plans should reflect what is possible and what should change, rather than ‘what is available’ Planning builds shared commitment to action

24 Examples of PCP tools PATH – developed by Jack Pearpoint, Marsh Forest and John O’Brien MAPS – by Marsha Forest and Jack Pearpoint One Page Profiles – developed by Essential Planning Learning Community Person Centred Reviews – developed by Helen Sanderson
