Preparing for Adulthood - New Person-Centred Planning Tools

The PfA Team, as part of the Preparing for Adulthood NDTi Programme, have refreshed a suite of person-centred planning materials which can be used when planning with young people and their families from Year 9 and upwards. 

These tools are specifically designed to find out what is important to a young person and the support they need. They can in fact be used in any planning situation and for many years have been used with people of all ages and with a range of needs.

Julie Pointer, Programme Manager for Preparing for Adulthood, gives a helpful introduction to PfA's refreshed person-centred planning tools:

There are four key documents that are available to use:

Coping Strategies

This is a new tool that we have developed to support young people to think about returning to education after the lockdown ends. It helps to express anxieties and other concerns and to think about ways to help address these.
