               Person Centred Planning and Review.


Transition in Essex should be person centred (i.e. the young person should be
at the centre of the process, take control where able and own the plan). Plans
and reviews should be drawn up which will enable the young person to plan
their life the way they want and which contribute to their full inclusion in
society, with support from the other people who they choose to be involved.

All agencies and schools must understand and sign up to the principles
involved in person centred planning if the processes and outcomes are to be
effective. These are defined in Improving Life Chances of Disabled People
(Jan 2005) and the National Valuing People Guidance (Appendix I – p38)

Person centred planning discovers and acts on what is important to a person.
Person centred approaches design and deliver services to support this. Hence
person centred planning can promote person centred approaches. Transition
planning should be a partnership between the young person, their
parents/carers, the school, the Connexions Service, the Connexions Personal
Advisor and any other agencies that can help make the plan happen.


Essex has been involved in the national pilot project organised by the Valuing
People Support Team to implement a process for person centred Year 9
Reviews. Following on from this, two Essex staff trained as Person Centred
Facilitators.
