Celebrating one year of FlexiChoices
Katherine, a person we support, wants to become more independent whilst out in the community. So she worked with Surrey Choices’ staff to create a Person Centred Plan to help her achieve her goals. The plan was centred around road safety skills, paying for items at the supermarket and increasing her independence.
Over the last few weeks Katherine has learnt many new ways to travel safely. She has learnt how to use a pedestrian crossings and why it is important to wait for the green man. Colleagues also supported Katherine to look left, right and left again to check for any traffic. She has also learnt to scan and pay for items using the self checkouts whilst doing her shopping.
Katherine has become more self reliant whilst out in the community and this is a huge achievement for her. Katherine’s mum was delighted that her Person Centred Plan has enabled her to reach a key goal that will keep her safe in the community. She said: “I was overjoyed to learn that she had been taught how to cross roads safely, as she never thought this was even possible.”
