Circle stories

Community Circles are completely flexible, and their purpose is always set by the person who the Circle is for. The Circle Connector will work alongside the individual to help them think about what would create the most positive change for them.

Here are just some of the stories from people who have Community Circles.

Cycling With Sight Loss

We are currently working with Sight Advice South Lakes, an amazing charity which is developing the Circles model to support people with visual impairment. They are currently helping a 100-year-old lady whose goal it is to ride a bike once more!

Flourishing Relationships

One of Community Connectors describes how Alice and Fiona have become part of one another’s lives through Community Circles and their shared love of the outdoors.

The Volunteer Matchmaker

Michelle works to develop Circles with older people living in the community in Doncaster. Part of her role involves matching volunteers with opportunities to get involved. In her most recent blog she talks about the challenges of matching volunteers and how to alleviate the frustration they may feel when waiting for a match.
