Let’s introduce you to Mario and Amelia….click here to hear how Community Circles made a positive difference in their lives to support their choice to stay at home, together!
Leila would also like to share her story about how Community Circles supported her after she moved out of home for the first time into her own place. Feeling more connected to her local community has enabled Leila to build a home of her own.
Supporting People to do what really matters to them
A Community Circle brings people together to help someone to live a more connected life, Community Circles support people to do what matters to them.
They are about finding out what is important to the person, and thinking together about how to turn that purpose into meaningful action.
It is also a way to help people self direct their lives through supporting their decision making, ensuring choice and control. The person and their circle get to know what makes the person happy, what’s getting in the way of living well, explore their current connections in their communities and help create new ones.
People often offer to help out others in need but don’t know where to start. A Community Circle provides the opportunity to find out how they can assist. These people could be friends, family, neighbours, professionals or other people they know. The Community Circle then helps to support the person, share tasks, and keeps everyone in the loop about what’s working and what’s not. Members meet every few weeks with the person being supported by a Circle facilitator.
