Case description

Sharon is a 20-year old woman who currently lives in supported accomodation. Support workers visit her three times a week and support her with budgeting, shopping and cooking. The organisation that provides support for Sharon uses person-centred planning to enable them to provide the support that Sharon needs.

At a recent review of her support plan, Sharon stated that she felt some of the tasks the support workers had been helping her with were now things she could do on her own. However, she feels that she needs some support to enable her to pursue the things she used to really enjoy. In particular, Sharon would like a support worker to go with her to a night club that she used to go to regularly. She had previously enjoyed nights out at this club with friends but had subsequently lost touch with these friends and is worried that she might find the noise and crowd difficult to handle.

Scenario from Perkins & Goddard (2007) "Module 5 - Sharing Responsibility for Risk and Risk-Taking", in NHS Education for Scotland/Scottish Recovery Network, "Realising Recovery: a National Framework for Learning and Training in Recovery Focused Practice".
It is proposed that support workers should accompany Sharon on visits to the night club as part of her person-centred plan
