What needs to Go into a Support Plan
What you need to know...
When support planning, you should consider all aspects of your life and activities of daily living. You should consider the points below. However, the plan belongs to you and can be structured or presented in whatever way works for you. Think about:
- What is important to you?
- What do you want to change or achieve?
- How will you arrange support?
- How will you spend your money?
- How will you manage your support?
- How will you stay in control of your life?
- How will you plan to make it happen?
Although you can put your plan together yourself, we recommend you talk to someone who can help you to see possibilities that you might not have thought of before. Take advice from Salvere, social services and other organisations with experience in advising on support planning. Plans can be written in different ways and may be long or short. They can be developed through text, pictures or a mixture of both. The important thing is that the plan is yours and it reflects who you are and what you want to do to make a better life. Your plan must be safe and legal and show how your needs will be met so that funds can be released to you. The plan will need to contain information about specific conditions, diagnosis, how these affect you and the support you want. It should also contain information about you and your lifestyle, what’s important to you and how your health condition impacts on your life.
Your plan is a ‘road-map’ for how you will spend your budget to meet your needs. If things change for you then the plan will need reviewing. You will need to submit your plan for approval to the local authority.
