Describe examples of person-centred thinking tools

NOTE: Please be aware that the information on this page is a very rough draft and has not been fact-checked so should be used accordingly (taken with a pinch of salt)! However, it should (hopefully) give you some pointers and set you off in the right direction.

Person-centred thinking tools include:

  • One page profiles – a single page of information about a person including what they are good at, what is important to them and what they need support with
  • Relationship circle – a diagram of concentric circles showing a person’s relationships with the innermost circle representing the people closest to them (an example template of a relationship circle has been attached to this document as evidence)
  • Matching tool – a method of getting a good match between individuals and their support staff by looking at the skills needed, support needed, personality characteristics and common interests.
