  • Ensuring that the plan and process are owned by the individual involves several key actions and principles:
  • Empower the Individual to Lead Discussions:
    • Encourage the individual to express their desires, concerns, and preferences openly.
    • Allow them to set the agenda for planning meetings and discussions.
  • Use the Individual’s Own Words:
    • Document the plan using language and terms that the individual prefers.
    • Reflect their voice and choices in the plan, ensuring it resonates with their personal expression.
  • Facilitate Informed Decision-Making:
    • Provide information and options in an accessible format, enabling the individual to make informed choices.
    • Support the individual in understanding the implications of various decisions.
  • Prioritise the Individual’s Preferences and Goals:
    • Focus on what is important to the individual, not just what is important for them from a professional perspective.
    • Ensure their goals and dreams are at the center of the planning process.
  • Offer Choices and Control:
    • Present multiple options for achieving goals, allowing the individual to choose paths that resonate with them.
    • Give control over who is involved in the planning process and when and where meetings take place.
  • Build on the Individual’s Strengths:
    • Highlight and build upon the individual’s strengths, capabilities, and past successes in the plan.
    • Encourage activities and goals that leverage these strengths.
  • Ensure Flexibility in the Plan:
    • Make the plan adaptable, with the understanding that the individual’s preferences, needs, and circumstances may change.
    • Involve the individual in regular reviews and adjustments of the plan.
  • Support Independence and Risk-Taking:
    • Encourage the individual to take calculated risks that are important for their growth and independence.
    • Discuss and plan for potential risks, ensuring the individual’s understanding and consent.
  • Validate and Act on Feedback:
    • Regularly seek the individual’s feedback on the planning process and the outcomes being achieved.
    • Act on this feedback to make adjustments, demonstrating that their input directly influences the plan.
  • Document Ownership:
    • Clearly state within the plan that it has been developed by and for the individual, and that they have ownership over it.
    • Include signatures or other forms of acknowledgment by the individual to signify their ownership and agreement with the plan.
  • By incorporating these principles and actions, the planning process becomes a true reflection of person-centred thinking, ensuring that plans are genuinely owned by the individual, tailored to their unique journey, and adaptable to their evolving aspirations and needs.
