About Circles of Support

People with learning disabilities can sometimes find it hard to meet people in their local area and they may find themselves spending more time with paid staff rather than having the chance to make their own friends.

A circle of support is a group of people who come together to support the person to think about future ambitions and help them to make their own decisions about their life. They find out what the person wants and offer support to enable them to achieve this.

 

Who we are looking for - People who:

Can offer regular, reliable commitment.
Are fun and outgoing.
Are enthusiastic and friendly.
Have good communication skills.
Can maintain a respectful and non- judgemental approach.

 

What’s in it for you?

An opportunity to meet new people.
An excellent way to make a positive difference to someone’s life.
Improve CV with new skills and experiences.
Access relevant training opportunities.
