By championing person centred planning and partnership working you’ll lead your care team to provide excellent, person centred support, which is both safe, maximises choice and control and identifies outcomes that improve the quality of everyday life. And your contribution and leadership skills will invaluable where support is not meeting expectations to promote skilful interactions.
