Person Centred Planning is a range of planning approaches that are great for the person in the driving seat; connecting people/communities and problem-solving. Person centred planning helps people gain control and plan for their future.
What is learnt through the planning process is creatively and colourfully recorded through graphic recording, a great way to engage people. In this context a graphic recording helps people see some of the solutions and answers that they have been looking for, it builds motivation and momentum to make a real difference.
The team at The Big Picture are able to process and graphic facilitate;
- PATHs – Planning Alternative Tomorrows with Hope
- MAPs – Making Action Plans
- ELP – Essential Lifestyle Plans
- Personal Futures Plans
The Graphic Facilitation helps people to remember the finer detail of the conversations that took place during the planning meeting.
At the end of a Person Centred Planning meeting the graphic recording is passed to the person whose plan it is. This gesture has great significance as it clearly demonstrates whose plan it is and enhances that sense of ownership for the focus person.
The purpose of a Person Centred Plan is to:
- Support the individual to gain control over their life
- Increase new opportunities for the person
- Turn the persons dreams into a reality
- Create stronger connections within the persons community
The person who we are creating the plan for would invite along anyone they would like to be involved in the planning meeting. This can include family, friends, professionals or someone from their community.
The planning meeting can be held in the persons home or somewhere else where they feel comfortable.
At the Big Picture we have all the materials needed to be able to make a Graphic recording in any environment, as long as there is enough room.
We can work with anyone to develop their Person Centred Plan and we are experienced in working with people in complex situations or with limited verbal communication and we do so in a very creative, engaging and effective way.
