Person-centred thinking

Person-centred thinking is a set of values, skills and tools used in getting to know someone, what they find important and what they want out of life.

Person-centred thinking tools are used in all sorts of situations, helping us plan, organise, and to understand and connect with communities. They are the foundation of how we work.

Being a person-centred organisation is our priority and at the heart of our personalisation journey.
