  • Share your knowledge and experience
  • Come up with new ideas
  • Share your knowledge of local resources

Find out more about the person and their community

  • Spend time with the person – get to know them.
  • Learn about the things they like (and dislike!)
  • Get to know their support team
  • Find out about the persons, community and things they might want to explore

Share their interests and skills

  • Contribute to planning or organising
  • Guide problem-solving and risk management
  • Design new ways of doing things
  • Practical, e.g. driving, cooking or fixing things

Be present

Some Microboard members just attend meetings with no specific role just being present can make a big difference to the well-being of the person and their family.
