In this sixth, and final, article in a series by the Hampshire person-centred planning team, Kate Gregson and colleagues describe an approach to help build a sustainable person-centred culture. They summarise key activities undertaken in making person-centred plans the essence of all services, which will ultimately erase the need for plans per se as people begin to lead the fulfilling lives to which they aspire

Aperson-centred plan (PCP) is not a one-off event but a continuous, evolving process. As Mcintosh (2001) says: ‘Sustained effort will be required from people at all levels…. There is a need to find a set of shared values and build a culture that will change people’s lives, improve all services and have an impact on communities.’
