Person, Partner, Place (PPP) is a workforce development training programme that supports you to provide the best possible person-centred care through asset-based approaches, which build on the strengths of people and their communities.

PPP is open to staff based in Manchester with the One Team and voluntary sector partners.


The programme is made up of three modules:

  • Module 1 (1 day): Focused on introducing and enabling asset-based approaches to person-centred care, and supporting people to build on their own capabilities. Module 1 is ideal for anyone working in the One Team, or the voluntary sector.
  • Module 2 (2 days): Focused on facilitating care and support using asset-based approaches – linking individuals to community assets. Module 2 is ideal for clinical and non-clinical staff supporting asset-based care in an integrated team
  • Module 3 (2 days): Focused on enabling people to understand how to integrate an asset based approach in one-to-one conversations. The workshop supports practitioners to use a range of approaches, techniques and practical skills in person-centred coaching, motivational interviewing and care and support planning.

There is also an optional ‘train the trainer’ course lasting six days (6 days)

What participants say about PPP

“As a professional, coaching and motivational interviewing is one way of making patient realize their own goals and aspirations and come up with their own solutions. I found the workshop very useful and I just wanted to say thank you for this learning opportunity. I feel that this is the way forward and the direction we should all be working towards to.”
Camille Short, Active Case Manager

“This was a brilliant course, I think everyone should have access to it. It actually shows you how to have a conversation with people in a better way. The day after the workshop I had a consultation with a lady that I had worked with before and tried this way of doing it and it was a completely different outcome. Using the coaching I felt for the first time we actually got to the bottom of things and she felt that I had listened more than last time. I think we are going to have a much better relationship going forward.”

“I feel it can cut down on session time as it can get to the root of the problem and allow the patient to think about what they can achieve rather than expecting the answers to be provided and steps taken on their behalf.”
Matthew Frosdyck, Focused Care Practitioner
