Outcome Focussed Support
Outcome focussed support is a different way of planning for the needs of our residents. It refers to the impacts of services on a person’s life.
For example, this might be a general outcome such as being safe or a specific one such as being able to see friends or being able to prepare their own meal. We then think about what is stopping them from achieving that outcome and what would help. We will develop a plan which sets out clearly what our residents want to achieve and what support they would like in order to achieve it. Everyone providing support will get a copy so that everyone knows what they want. The residents will get a copy as well.
In addition to working to achieve the outcomes which are important to them as individuals, there are ten key outcomes that shape all our work, which are important to our residents:
- I make everyday choices
- I make important decisions about my life
- People treat me with respect
- I take part in everyday activities
- I have friendships and relationships
- I am part of my local community
- I get the chance to work
- People listen to my family’s views
- I am safe from bullying and abuse
- I get help to stay healthy
