I agree that smaller agencies in particular have not been resourced to take responsibility for individual planning. Individual planning along with financial planning and monitoring our own services assisting people to manage their funds (which seems like a conflict of interest) has been off-loaded to agencies. At the same time, CSW’s are expecting that we will follow whichever template they chose for the plan. e.g. many have gone back to the old IPP forms which are not person-centred. I believe we could take the lead for planning if we had a position dedicated to do so.
