A Circle of Support, sometimes called a Circle of Friends, is a group of people who meet together on a regular basis to help somebody accomplish their personal goals in life. The Circle acts as a community around that person (the 'focus person') who, for one reason or another, is unable to achieve what they want in life on their own and decides to ask others for help. The focus person is in charge, both in deciding who to invite to be in the Circle, and also in the direction that the Circle's energy is employed, although a facilitator is normally chosen from within the Circle to take care of the work required to keep it running.

This trained is aimed at anyone wanting to learn more about circles of support and how they benefit people, especially for volunteers aiming to facilitate a circle.

This is an interactive training session, in which you will learn about the history of circles of support & how they became a fantastic person centred tool, the different types of circles and how they benefit people in different situations, before having the chance to put your learning into practice with practical workshops.

Once you have completed this days training you will receive a certificate and learning materials, and be ready to facilitate a circle of support.
