Person-centred thinking tools
Person-centred thinking tools help you to think and plan for life.
They are used as practical ways to capture information that feeds into care and support planning, as well as to improve understanding, communication and relationships. These simple tools developed with the Learning Community for Person-Centred Practices walk you through your journey step by step. You can use them on yourself, with people you support and with people you work with.
