Person Centred Approach & Planning 

 

Person Centred Planning has been primarily based in the disability sector, as it places the emphasis on transforming the options available to the person, rather than on 'fixing' or changing the person. Person Centred Planning has been based diversely on the principles of community integration/inclusion/ normalisation/social role valorization.

 

Person Centred Planning explores and acts on what is important to a person. It is a process for continual listening and learning, focusing on what is important to someone now and in the future, and acting on this in partnership with the person’s family and friends.

 

Peel Home & Community Supports is strongly committed to thinking and working in a person centred way, we seek to support people to;

 

  • Make choices and decisions for themselves

  • Grow and develop in their relationships

  • Be present and participate in their communities

  • Have valued roles and be treated with respect 

  • Share ordinary places

  • Develop their talents, interests and abilities.

Our Commitment

 

Peel Home & Community Supports is committed to using Person Centred Approaches and Planning in all services. We recognise the importance of the person being at the centre of the planning process to identify what is personally important to deliver his or her outcomes. Our work needs to be informed by the person we are providing support for.

 

Person Centred work acknowledges the role of relationships and the importance of building partnerships between people, communities, organisations and with the person’s loved ones and informal systems of support. In situations where people have no family or friends to support them, it is our responsibility to assist people to build a supportive network of people of their choosing around them.

 

Peel Home & Community Supports understand the specialised support you or your loved one may require, therefore our committment to you is to support you to be in control of your own life, to respect the choices you make and for you to live as independently as possible, connected to family, friends and community.

You can be confident that all support staff are fully trained and have current National Police & Working with Children clearances, First Aid and Manual handling qualifications and are medication competent.
