This article, the second in a series by the Hampshire person-centred planning team, outlines the team’s attempts to build a sustainable person-centred culture. It also explores the benefits of training circles of support in relation to person-centred planning and shared facilitation
The Valuing People White Paper (DH 2001) suggests that facilitators are essential to person-centred planning (PCP). In examining the impact of PCP, Robertson et al (2005) found that people were 12 times more likely to have an effective plan if they had a facilitator with a personal commitment to PCP. The literature (for example, Ritchie et al 2003) tends to support the idea that the best way to make plans happen is by training people to act as facilitators.
