The Disabilities Trust is committed to person-centred planning. Our focus on a holistic, person-centred working plays an essential role in the ethos and philosophy of our autism services. In practice, this means that every service user is recognised as a unique individual and has an opportunity to explore their strengths and skills in a supportive and non-threatening environment. Service users have the opportunity to contribute to their own person-centred goals and their aspirations are included in plans and reviews.
