We were involved in leading the Practicalities & Possibilities programme. This was a national programme working with 9 sites across England to explore what it would take to make person centred thinking and planning work well with older people, looking at how we apply the principles of self directed support via the person centred thinking tools. The 'Using Person Centred Thinking Skills with Older People' publication resulted from this programme & is available on the website as a free download if you want more information about the programme
