What is a person centred plan?

Person centred planning (PCP) is a way of helping someone plan their life. The process looks at the goals that the person wants to achieve and the support that they will need to achieve them.

This service can be provided by professionals who have been trained to help people plan for their future and can help with person centred planning. There are a number of organisations who provide this service.

Professionals who have been trained to assist people plan for their future can help with person centred planning and there are a number of organisations who provide this service. You can find more information about the organisations in your area that offer person centred planning by contacting The Person Centred Planning Network Scotland or Disability Information Scotland .

The result of the process is a plan that can be put into action to make the desired changes happen in a young person’s life.

Parents and/or carers or others who have not been trained in this cannot be funded to act as planners by the Transition Fund.

How much can I apply for for a PCP Grant?

You will need to contact the organisation who will be providing the person centred planning to see how much the cost will be and then let us know the amount in the application form, we will then review your application. As in our full Transition Fund application forms, we ask that you attach a letter or email from the organisation providing the service stating the costs. If the costs are not attached to the application, there may be a delay in processing this.

The maximum Transition Fund grant we normally award is £4,000 and what you spend on PCP will not be taken off this.

The typical cost of a PCP process will be in the region of £300-£800, depending on the organisation you choose.
