“These brilliant courses have confirmed how important it is to our wellbeing that we stay connected and do the things that matter to us. Crucially, it gave me the inspiration and confidence to see that sometimes all this takes is a bit of imagination, creativity and resourcefulness. Many of my colleagues, both my own staff and those from partners, have also thoroughly enjoyed and benefitted from the courses and I can’t wait to put these ideas into practice”

“The Community Circles training has been so eye opening, thought provoking and practical for colleagues across the organisation as well as our affiliated partners. It is easy to sometimes overlook the potential that connections, relationships and communities hold; it is often tempting to look for services or an external provider or expert to provide solutions to the things people want to achieve in life. The workshops unlocked a different way of thinking and we can’t wait to start putting these ideas into practice”.

Great Course, very informative. Cath has a wonderful ability in her approach in making everyone feel safe and supported to contribute during the learning.
The timing of this learning was great in relation to our new Strategic Approach and our Strategic Ambitions (2021- 2015). It was fab to see the team engaging as they did. I am excited to see how we can use the learning across our different settings and how it helps us connect and have meaningful relationships with people we connect with.
Feedback from Bally Cara in Australia following Community Circles training, inclusion for older people.
“The training and discussions we have had through our partnership with Community Circles has been really valuable. The Community Circles Connector is knowledgeable and passionate about working alongside communities and through sharing stories, experiences, tools and resources we have been able to explore and think differently and creatively about community connections and relationships and about the gifts and contributions all members of the community can bring”.
