  4. 4. The team <ul><li>We tried very hard to get more people to join the team in order to meet the target by the end of March </li></ul><ul><li>The timescales and the temporary roles made this quite difficult </li></ul><ul><li>We realised that we were unlikely to meet our targets by the end of March 2011 </li></ul>
  5. 5. The Extension <ul><li>We have discussed with Devon County Council the option of extending the timescale of the contract until the end of June 2011 </li></ul><ul><li>This will enable us to meet the targets of the contract in spite of the delays we have had. </li></ul><ul><li>It will also mean that we can get more individual PCPs to a stage where they no longer need our direct support </li></ul>
  6. 6. Person Centred Planning Facilitation – Current Case Log (End of March 2011) <ul><li>The facilitators are working through their list of referrals </li></ul>Referrals have increased by 27% (31 people) since the last meeting. Of this group, 16 are attributed to the additional contract awarded by Mencap Total 194
  7. 7. Person Centred Planning Facilitation – The Stages Stage 1 Referral made Person put onto waiting list Initial contact made to “assess” Facilitator allocated Stage 2 Facilitator begins to facilitate planning (or mentor someone else to do so) Circle of support developed Planning developed using a variety of tools Person within Circle of support identified and supported to become future facilitator. Stage 3 Planning handed over to the person and their facilitator Plan continues to develop without the need for direct facilitation from Devon PCP

  9. 9. Person Centred Planning Facilitation – Final Case Log (End June 2011) Of this group, 16 are attributed to the additional contract awarded by Mencap Total 216
  10. 10. Other planning not facilitated by Devon PCP <ul><li>We are aware that lots of providers are doing PCP with the people they support </li></ul><ul><li>At the moment it is difficult to persuade them to share these plans with the project </li></ul><ul><li>It is also challenging as some people claim to be doing PCP, but it is not actually PCP </li></ul><ul><li>We have found examples of planning which would not actually be classified as planning for various reasons </li></ul><ul><li>There is a need for a “Code Of Practice” around PCP and information sharing </li></ul>
  11. 11. PCP Networks <ul><li>Numbers attending went down. </li></ul><ul><li>The reasons we have gathered for this include: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Limit on how far fulfilling lives services were able to travel from their bases </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Families wanting PCP for the person they care for, but not keen to take on the role of facilitator </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Staff from independent and voluntary sector services unable to get managers to agree for them to attend as it was seen as “training” and many training budgets have been cut down to just cover training like first aid and manual handling </li></ul></ul>
  12. 12. PCP has resulted in real change! <ul><li>Mr T really enjoys parties, but never get invited to parties in his local community as people do not know how to communicate with him. His Mum is now calling together a group of neighbours from local streets and Mr T will be, with his neighbours, organising a street party for the upcoming royal wedding. </li></ul>
  13. 13. PCP has resulted in real change! <ul><li>Y moved to Devon from France a couple years ago and was struggling to meet new friends. Y also loves football. PCP and through a small circle of support enabled Y to join a local football club. Y now plays for a team and has a great new social network of friends. </li></ul>
  14. 14. PCP has resulted in real change! <ul><li>Whilst working on a Communication and Behaviour Chart to understand S’s needs it became apparent that S did not actually have epilepsy, despite being treated for it for many years. It was thought that S was suffering from Migraine, once her medication was changed S no longer presented the facial muscle changes and behaviour problems . </li></ul>
  15. 15. PCP has resulted in real change! <ul><li>Mr W and his family were getting worried about what might happen to Peter and who would support him when his elderly mother was no longer able to continue to be his main carer. Through PCP Mr W looked at what housing and support options might work and not work for him. SWAPS came out as being the ideal solution for him. A provider was identified who shared his interests and they were introduced. Mr W now spends his respite time with the SWAPS provider and will gradually being spending more time there until he moves there permanently. </li></ul>
  16. 16. PCP has resulted in real change! <ul><li>Mr P likes to write lists and finds it easier to do this on the computer. He was spending lots of time at his day service doing this instead of getting on with the training he was funded to do at the day centre. He said this was because he didn’t have a computer at home to write his lists on, and he couldn’t afford one. Someone in his circle of support had an old computer which they no longer needed. It was not a very high-tech one, but met Mr P’s needs perfectly. The computer was given to Mr P and he can now use his time at the day service more effectively as he writes his lists at home. </li></ul>
  17. 17. PCP has resulted in real change! <ul><li>Miss M was feeling isolated. She did not have a close relationship with her brother and did not have a circle of friends. Her brother attended Miss M’s Circle of Support meeting. This helped him to realise that there were things he could do and skills that he had which could support his sister. He is now helping her to connect with other people through Skype and social networking sites. Carrying out these activities together has also brought the brother and sister closer together. </li></ul>
  18. 18. PCP has resulted in real change! <ul><li>Miss A is from a Christian family and has strong Christian beliefs herself. Her current support provider was not meeting her religious and spiritual needs. Her circle of support identified that a faith specific provider would better meet her needs as both the staff and other service users would share her beliefs and faith related activities could be done in a way which did not isolate her. </li></ul>
  19. 19. PCP has resulted in real change! <ul><li>Following a big change in her life (being rescued from an abusive family), Miss S has been able to look to her future in a way which has not been possible before, due to the barriers that had been put there in the past by her family. She has expressed skills and interest working with children and is now enrolled at college to get the qualifications she needs to move towards a paid job in childcare. </li></ul>
  20. 20. The database <ul><li>We have developed database </li></ul><ul><li>This is a computer system which people can use to keep their PCP on track </li></ul>
  21. 21. The database <ul><li>You can use this database to share your PCP with other people </li></ul><ul><li>Your PCP will only be shown to the people you choose </li></ul>
  22. 22. The database <ul><li>We are waiting for Devon County Council to decide what they are going to do with the database at the end of the project. </li></ul><ul><li>Until that decision is made it is difficult to ask people to put their information onto the database. </li></ul>
  23. 23. The database <ul><li>We have found the database very useful for looking at outcomes and finding out what progress people have made. </li></ul><ul><li>We would like to continue to do this within our own business system whilst we wait for DCC to decide the future of the database. </li></ul>
