Description: Interest in person-centred planning has grown rapidly over the past few years, reflecting and driving growth in numbers of practitioners and variety of methods and sponsors among organisations. This growth in interest has shaped policy in several authorities and many agencies that have adopted person-centred planning as a method of choice for at least some of the groups of people they serve. Through person-centred planning’s first years, its early developers have been busy doing plans with people and their families, guiding others in learning to facilitate planning, consulting with organisations exploring person-centred work, and joining people with disabilities and their families to tell participants in conferences and workshops about what they have learned.
