You do not have to use them all – just pick out the cards that will be most help. It is a good idea to read the Getting started cards before you begin. You can use these cards on your own, with family and friends or with anyone who is helping you develop your care and support plan. These cards are useful to individuals who want to write their care and support plan, and anyone who helps people with support planning.
