What We Do

Planning Together

Training and Facilitation

Planning Together

‘Planning Together’ events are highly interactive, facilitated sessions based on person-centred approaches.

At each event a number of individuals, with invited friends, family and supporters, are encouraged to explore what a good, ordinary life would like for them and agree action to make this real.

Paradigm has rencently completed a 5-year project with a Council who have developed Planning Together as a core part of their support to young people with disabilities moving into adulthood.  We are currently working with a  number of agencies facilitating (and training their staff to) facilitate Planning Together to explore what a good future would look like for those attending day services.

‘It was nothing like I thought it would be.  It was good to hear people share their thoughts and ideas for my daughter.’ (Mum, Midlands)           

Facilitation and Training

Paradigm has trained teams of facilitators across the country to ensure that Planning Together events are hosted to gather the wishes and needs of people supported, and ensure the organisation designs their offer directly in response to these wishes and needs.

The training and support offered is designed for each organisation but typically includes: 2 days Facilitators training; 1 day Planning Together event; 1 day evaluation and future planning; and an agreed amount of time for mentoring of the Facilitators to ensure the quality of the roll-out of Planning Together events.
