Product description

It is widely agreed that there is a need to transform care and support services. "Supporting People" explores for the first time with service users, practitioners, carers and managers what person-centred support means to them, what barriers stand in the way and how these can be overcome. It offers both theoretical insights and practical guidance and highlights the importance of a participatory approach. Based on the largest independent UK study of person-centred support and written by an experienced team that includes service users, practitioners and researchers, it demonstrates how change can be made now, and what strategic changes are needed for needed for person-centred support to have a sustainable future.
