Person centred reviews enable organisations reflect on the progress or changes that need to be made in a person’s life. The person is involved, has a role in organising the meeting and who they invite, and how it is run.
This tool

  • Makes sure the person is heard
  • Enables them to be involved in their meeting
  • Enables families to have a valued role in the meeting
  • Creates action plans for change which can be measured
  • Gives organisations information about how they can improve and develop services.
