During this assignment, I will be producing and information booklet for new social work assistants that identify the processes and assessment tools that would be involved when planning support for individuals with different needs.

Overall it’s to make any changes so that the care plan is successful for the service user. It gives the service user the opportunity to discuss their experiences and relations to whether they need to make any alterations to their care
