What are person-centred approaches?
‘Person-centred approaches are ways of commissioning, providing and organising services rooted in listening to what people want, to help them live in their communities as they choose.’
(Department of Health)
‘In many respects the philosophy underpinning person-centred planning is similar to that of ‘personalised learning’ or ‘inclusive learning’ with their emphasis on listening to learners and establishing a match between their aspirations, needs and interests in order to plan and implement teaching programmes.’
