Person Centred Planning

Posted on March 6, 2013. Filed under: Adult's Services, PCP |


The government set out its strategy for services for people with learning disabilities in a white paper, ‘Valuing People’, published in 2001. It introduces the concept of Person Centred Planning (PCP) as:

“a process for continual listening and learning, focusing on what is important to someone now and in the future, and acting upon this in alliance with their family and friends.”

Person Centred Planning provides the basis for, and promotes, ‘ways of commissioning, providing and organising services rooted in listening to what people want.’It is based on principles of rights, independence, choice and inclusion.
