Abstract

Following the White Paper Valuing People, person centred planning is now firmly on the agenda of services to people with learning difficulties in England. Person centred planning has its foundations in communities of practice that have innovated and developed person centred approaches to action planning for disabled people. This article suggests that services will need to undergo some radical re-visioning of their ways of working if they are to make a meaningful reality of person centred planning. It is further suggested that services need to become learning organizations, committed to values of inclusion and to living those values in their practice. Further, by promoting and celebrating innovation and creativity, by flattening hierarchical structures and promoting social entrepreneurship and cooperative working and inquiry, services can further develop person centredness in what they do and make a reality of the rhetoric in Valuing People.
