Person Centred Approaches Guidance:

Person centred planning places the young person and their family at the centre of decision making. It requires the young person to be recognised as an individual with strengths and challenges, likes and dislikes. Person centred planning tools such as one page profiles, working / not working and important to / important for can help with planning support that reflects the individual needs, strengths and aspirations of the young person and their family.
