Change that leads to better lives

Relationship Map

We can learn about and record the important people in someone's life by having conversations and using the Relationship Map.

Relationship map

One of the Preparing for Adulthood Pathways is about friends, relationships and community. We often work with young disabled people who want better social lives and friends to do things with. Often young people dream about having boyfriends, girlfriends and about one day getting married or living with a partner.

Developing a person-centred plan is designed to find out what is important to a person and this almost always includes important people in their life. We can learn about and record the important people in someone's life by having conversations and using the relationship map. It is a good way to start thinking about who is already in a person’s life and how those relationships might be supported and how new relationships can be developed.
