Support Plans and Person Centred Plans capture the detail about what is important in the persons life, what is working well for them and also the areas of their life that they would like to change.
At Imagineer, we are experienced in creatively working alongside people who are developing their Support Plan or Person Centred Plan helping to facilitate the conversations to gather the detail for a plan, ensuring that the persons wishes are clearly and accurately expressed in their plan.
A Support Plan should form the basis of positive action towards an improved future.
A Support Plan is focused on and led by you. The details will be determined by what you want to share, what you want to focus on and the areas of your life that you wish to achieve things in or to change. The Plan is what helps you to stay in control and be in the driving seat of your life; and it helps everyone else to understand how that should happen.

The frequency of the review meetings will be up to you and this can change depending on what is happening in your life at any particular time. At Imagineer, we find that people value regular meetings when there are changes taking place in their life or when there are a number of issues that need to be addressed.
