Circles of Support and Personalisation

I'm really pleased to announce our new paper on "Circles of Support and Personalisation". In it we explore how a new wave of circles of support could enhance people's lives, build community connections and community capital, with examples from some of the work we've seen in Lancashire and around the country.

Circles of Support are really a very simple and informal method of supporting a person's life. They bring people together around the person to think about how their life is working and take action to make it better.

This method means that people's connections in the community are really valued and sought after, and it seeks ways that people can contribute their gifts to the community.

We're hoping to organise a big 'Circles Convention' in Lancashire, where we'll think about how we can build the 'second wave' of circles: so watch this space!
