Sub Group Work Plan








Person Centred Approaches Sub Group



On This Page:





Why Person Centred Approaches are important

Person Centred Approaches are very important. One of the most important things is to listen to the person with a learning disabilitly. Person Centred Approaches will help us change the way services are provided and will empower people with learning disabilities to make decisions and changes in their lives.

In Brighton and Hove all providers are expected to support people to have Person Centre Plans and the Partnership Board supports the use of Person Centred Feedback Forms.

Checking Person Centred Planning

Person Centred Feedback form - please send us one of these forms everytime a person-centred plan is reviewed. We can use the information to plan services. Confidentiality is assured. These reports tell you what we learn from those feedback forms.

We also check if service providers are helping people do person centred plans

We had a Self-Directed Support Information session

Information session flier


About 20 people attended an information session about self-directed support in January of 2010

They talked and learnt about ways people can direct their own support

If you could not come to the information session there is lots of information in the Self-Directed Support Documents and Links list on this webpage

“Supporting Me” guides for Personal Assistants (PAs)

There are two copies of each guide. One is a PDF colour copy , with photos and drawings. The other is a text only version of the guide (a word document), with no photos or drawings. This can be emailed and printed out easily on a home computer. It can be altered by an individual employer so that it is personal and tailored to them. Their photos can be added to it.

(these are large files and will take some time to download).
