Published on

C-Change Scotland share their experience of applying creative person-centred planning approaches. Carr Gomm’s ‘Community Contacts’ works in partnership across a spectrum of social care organisations. It aims to raise awareness of SDS in Argyll and Bute and support people to make informed choices. Volunteers form part of the new team and ‘walk alongside’ prospective users of SDS, helping to make the right choices at the right time. Contributed by: CCPS
