Person Centred Care

Person Centred Care is a method of supporting and working with individuals who have a learning disability. It empowers those with disabilities to take charge of the direction they would like their life to take, it helps to work out what the individual wants from life, how best to achieve it, the type of support needed, and how it would be best given.
