Supporting Person Centred Care

Positive Paths Children & Young Adults service, provide 1:1 and 2:1 support to members on an individual person centred way. This means that we aim to develop the knowledge, skills and confidence, our members have to assist them in making informed decisions and be involved in their own health and care.


We understand that everyone is different, therefor ensure we adapt our support to ensure members receive the most beneficial and enjoyable care as possible. To do so we ask members and their family, to create a profile with us, so we can identify how to best adapt our service for our members. As well as this, we create goals with our members within the service and ensure we are encouraging and supporting these goals to be achieved.


Managers carry out reviews within the year to identify any changes to our members, where we can adapt our support practices to ensure we are continually improving their individual skills and confidence within the community we support in.


7 Principles of Person Centred Care:

Individuality, independence, privacy, partnership, choice, dignity, respect and rights
