A path is a goal focused action plan that details how young people will get from where they are to where they aspire to be in future
Person Led Planning
Person Led Planning is based on the philosophy of inclusion and personal growth towards creating positive change. The team at The Why Not? Trust support young people to invite trusted adults in their lives along to person led planning meetings. These are designed to help individuals explore their hopes and dreams for the future and how they can realise these.
At the Person Led Planning meeting, two people from The Why Not? Trust facilitate engagement and record the outcome of this in pictures and words. This graphic illustration can take the form of a path or a map. A map includes details of the young person’s dreams and aspirations, what they have and what they need to achieve these. A path is a goal focused action plan that details how young people will get from where they are to where they aspire to be in future, how this will be done and who will help them to achieve their goals.
It includes an opportunity for young people to identify key people whom they would like to connect with beyond their care experience, along with mapping resources within their local communities.
