Event description


This workshop is designed specifically for staff working in group settings. We will discuss the unique elements of care planning in a group program and how you can work together to document meaningful, individualised care plans for each member of your group. The session will include information about:

  • Making individualised goals meaningful within group activities
  • The key elements that need to be documented in GDCP and how these can be documented effectively and efficiently.
  • Using appropriate language and strategies to reinforce a strengths based approach within GDCP documentation.
  • Incorporating different perspectives within a GDCP (e.g. client, carers and staff).

The workshop will utilise a range of case studies and participants will also have an opportunity to discuss their experience and seek feedback on examples of their own work.

Participant Feedback:

“Today was so useful, thank you. How to write the plans is so much clearer for me now”

“Thanks for a wonderful workshop. The practical activities have cemented exactly what we need to do and going   through it step by step made it seem much simpler than I thought it was this morning”

“It was very helpful to understand the difference between care planning and activity planning. I can see now why setting goals with my members will help us all work better”
