1.1 A person-centred value tells you how to work in a person-centred way. Person-centred values are guiding principles that help to put the interests of the individual receiving care or support at the centre of everything they want and need. Examples of these guiding principles include: individuality (everyone’s differences must be recognised and respected), choice (for individuals to be able to make own choices and be in control of own life), rights (everyone should be treated fairly and equally), privacy (care, information and activities must be kept confidential, dignity (treat individuals with respects and value them), respect (ensures that you value an individual and their opinions), partnership (is working alongside others to benefit the individual) and independence (empower individuals to do activities for themselves).
