- Placing the person at the centre of support planning activity
- Promoting wellbeing and independence and enabling self-care – by focusing on the person’s strengths, goals and what matters to them
- Multidisciplinary working by health and social care professionals.
- Integrated working can reduce barriers and duplication and focus on what’s most important to the person we are helping.
