Your Move

Written Material

"Your Move" is an initiative by Scottish Human Services aimed at supporting people to live the kind of life they choose. Thus, the article follows the story of Luke, a young man with cerebral palsy who was socially isolated. Luke undertook the process of person-centred planning. This involved a positive vision of the future and finding out what the essential requirements were for Luke to have the lifestyle that was right for him. This has seen Luke move into a flat which he shares with Donald, who shares Luke's interests. In addition to Donald's involvement, Luke receives additional paid support. As a result, Luke's social opportunities have expanded and as a result of further planning, new opportunities are opening up for him. Keywords: Individualisation, Accommodation
