Planning Live is a fun, engaging, high energy way to bring people together to collectively create a plan to help a person live the life they want to live, with the focus on the individual and their strengths, dreams and goal – UK Programme. 

Planning Live is an inclusive and engaging series of conversations that brings the people who are important to a person together, either in-person or remotely, to listen to what is important to them and discuss a range of options that result in desired outcomes and a “perfect week” on which to base the planning of the person’s support and, if applicable, individual budget.

If you use support services, or you are a professional, carer or family member wanting to develop more person-centred support plans in the UK, then this workshop is for you. It can be used with adults and with young people.

How Planning Live will help people thrive:

  • You want to learn how people who share their home and support want to use their resource allocation to personalise this.
  • You want to support people to use their resource allocations as ISFs.
  • You want to develop your own support plans with others who are doing the same thing.
  • You want to support young people to plan their transition into adult life.
  • You want to ensure that you involve children, young people and their families in developing their Education, Health and Care plans in an inclusive and meaningful way.
  • You want to increase aspirations and help people think of creative ways of delivering outcomes.
  • You want to increase the capacity of young people and families to develop and maintain their Education, Health and Care plans over time.
  • You want to find an efficient approach to develop plans at scale.
  • You want your own staff to be able to facilitate Planning Live workshops
