What is a Circle?
At the centre of every circle is a focus person, whom the circle supports.
Each circle has a volunteer facilitator who helps the people in a circle to plan actions and put these actions into practice. They give a few hours a month to facilitate meetings and help make sure the circle is making good things happen with the focus person.
Facilitators are supported by volunteer mentors, who are experienced facilitators.
Facilitators and mentors are supported by paid Community Circles Connectors.
We are working towards having a Community Circles Connector in each area. A Connector finds and supports people to become facilitators and together they help to get a person’s circle started.
