Hub: Plan coordinator- administrator who draws the plan together
Spoke: Family supporter fulfilling key working responsibilities- identified with the family from one of the key service providers involved. They will know the family well & will help gather real time information for ‘All About Me.’
There will be lots of existing information available about a child/ young person referred and considered eligible for an Education Health and Care plan.
The plan coordinator will begin to collate existing information about the child/ young person or family centrally to inform ‘My plan’ e.g. information from system 1, CAF, looked after care plan, maternity records. CAF, health care plans etc.
At the same time the Family supporter will use a few simple person centred conversations with the family to develop ‘My story’ using the ‘All About Me’ document. This needs to be completed within 6 weeks from the decision that a plan will be put in place. This information can be held on a Wiki.
