Outcome Focused Support Planning

Outcome focused support planning is a different way of delivering social care.  Historically, Adult Social Care looked at a service user's needs and how to meet them.  Outcome focused support planning starts by looking at what the service user wants to achieve; i.e. being able to prepare their own meal. We then ask what is stopping the service user from achieving that outcome and what would help.


A support plan is then developed which sets out clearly what they want to achieve and what support they would like in order to achieve it.

Outcome focused work is not about being person centred, but about being person led.

Outcome Focused Support workbook

To create a record that you have completed and understood the various online resources, you are advised to complete a Reflective Practice Form for each online course you undertake. 


This form will help to reinforce the main learning points whilst also identifying any further learning requirements you may have.  It is recommended that you discuss the completed form with your Line Manager and have them counter-sign it.  This form should then be retained by yourself and can be used as evidence for a course completion record, professional registration and SVQ evidence.
