One Page Profile

A One Page Profile captures all the important information about a person on a single sheet of paper under three simple headings: what people appreciate about me, what’s important to me and how best to support me.

We believe that one-page profiles are the foundation of personalisation, and can lead to positive change for people, whatever their age or circumstances. They provide us with an at-a-glance way of knowing what really matters to people, that can be taken with them as they move through services and come into contact with people.

One Page Profiles are deceptively simple, and in this simplicity lies their strength. They help us to support people better by:

  • Helping us build better relationships by truly understanding what really matters to the person in their life and the way they are supported to live it.
  • Providing a record that can move with the person as they transition from service to service or use multiple services.
  • Being regularly updated to reflect people’s changing circumstances and aspirations.
  • When staff have One Page Profiles, the people being supported feel like they get to know the person, rather than just the job title.
  • When used at work, they can contribute to more person-centred teams, where individual strengths are recognised and different ways of working are taken into account.

One page profiles are a really good starting point for workforce and people to start to build trusting relationships and could be used as part of the personalised care and support planning process.

To be embedded in personalisation learning and development for staff, so it becomes something everyone does as they join organisations and at different times during their working life.
