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 Leading Planning.
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.
