Creating a plan is important to making sure the good things in life are happening for people. If individuals are receiving funding for support, then it may be a requirement that they provide the funder with a clear plan for their daily lives with an accompanying budget.

Person Centred Planning is a term being increasingly used by people to reflect an individualised approach to planning with and for people. Ideally, this idea should reflect a shift in thinking, values and actions about how people with disability are supported rather than just a plan with goals and activities that are assigned to an individual. The following articles can provide some guidance about what it really means to enable a person to be at the centre of their lives with choice and control over decisions and the planning process.
