On 25 November, Quip – Association for Change, organized a one-day national conference in Prague. The main purpose of the event was to raise awareness and promote the use of person centered planning. ‘We wanted to show how person centered planning and natural support could promote opportunities to live ordinary lives for people with disabilities.’ The covering topic was Article 19 of the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities and the right to live in the community.

During the conference, providers of services for persons with disabilities shared their experiences. An important aspect of the event was switching the role of people with disabilities and their families with the role of trainers. Many personal stories were told and participants connected using person centered planning tools. Joint participation of professionals and people with disabilities strengthened the exchange of experiences between services providers and service users.

Graphic facilitation was used for better understanding. The key message of the conference can be summarized into the conclusion that personalized support provides the possibility to live in the community for everyone, including people with profound disabilities.
