17 Step Behaviour Risk Management Plan

The 17 Step Plan is a person centred risk management plan designed to support the proactive management of risks associated with challenging behaviour.

The plan should be developed by appropriate professionals in collaboration with the person, their family and advocates. It should be adopted as one part of a more holistic positive approach to supporting the person.

Wellness Recovery Action Plan (WRAP)

WRAP is a model of self-management that aims to support recovery and the maintenance of health and wellbeing. It was initially developed by service users in North America and is now recognised as an evidence-based practice. Service users and carers from across RDaSH have asked that the Trust support the development of WRAP so that it can be made available to all service users and carers who choose to apply it in their Recovery.

The learning disability service has developed two accessible versions of WRAP.

The LD WRAP Book was highly commended at the national Care Programme Approach Awards 2012.

The LD WRAP 2 is designed to offer an even more accessible format for service users who prefer a simplified lay out.
