Assessment criteria: 4.3 Evaluate which person-centred thinking tools could be used to think more about own community connections

  • To evaluate community connections and how to enhance them, several person-centred thinking tools can be particularly useful:
  • Relationship Circle (Circle of Support): Helps map out current relationships within the community, identifying who is close and who might be more distant but still important. This visual tool can highlight areas where community connections are strong and where they could be developed further.
  • Community Mapping: Although not a traditional person-centred thinking tool, creating a map of local community resources, groups, and places of interest can identify new opportunities for engagement and connection. This tool can be adapted to focus on personal interests and needs, revealing potential new networks.
  • Good Day/Bad Day Analysis: Applied to community activities and interactions, this tool can help identify what aspects of community involvement contribute to positive experiences and what factors might lead to negative ones. Insights gained can guide decisions on which community activities to pursue more actively and which to adjust or avoid.
  • Important To/Important For: Evaluating community connections in terms of what is important to you personally (e.g., sharing interests, feeling supported) versus what is important for your well-being (e.g., safety, access to services). This balance can inform how you prioritise and seek out community connections.
  • Dreams and Goals: Setting specific goals related to community engagement, such as joining a new group, volunteering, or attending local events. This tool helps clarify what you hope to achieve through increased community connections and plan steps to make these aspirations a reality.
  • Working/Not Working Analysis: Reflecting on current community connections to determine what is working well and what is not. This analysis can provide a clear basis for action, whether it’s doing more of what works or addressing areas that are not working.
  • One-Page Profile: Creating a one-page profile focused on community involvement could share with community groups or services. It would highlight how best to support you within these settings, your interests, and how you like to communicate, enhancing the quality of community interactions.
  • Utilising these person-centred thinking tools can provide a structured approach to evaluating and enhancing your community connections, ensuring that your engagement is meaningful, fulfilling, and aligned with your personal values and needs.
