Person Centred Planning (PCP)
One of our objectives under Goal one in our Strategic plan 2017-2021, is to put in place Personal Centred Planning system for children , young people and adults who use our services. PCP was at the heart of the organisation in 2018 working with adults.
Person Centred Planning (PCP) can be defined as a way of discovering;
- How the person wants to live their life ?
- What is needed to make that possible ?
PCP is the approach to give people the opportunity to set and achieve meaningful goals. It makes a positive difference in people's lives and involves staff and family members.
The real changes happening in peoples lives are clearly visable.
