What is Families Leading Planning
When, for whatever reason, people are not able to lead the Person Centred Plan
for themselves, family members are in a great position to develop a plan with
and for their family member. If a family member is strongly involved in Person
Centred Planning with and on behalf of their relative we call this Families
Valuing People has said that " family members and friends are full partners in
planning" (Department of Health 2002) and should be offered the
opportunity to learn about leading plans for the people they love, should they
wish to do this.
A Person Centred Plan helps you to be clear about what you wish services to do
and how they need to provide this support.
