Circles Initiative works in partnership with you and your family to build freely given relationships which strengthen your opportunities for an inclusive life, through building social and community participation. The Circle Facilitator gets to know you and your family well and works with you to deliberately invite other people into your life with a view that they might “look out” for you over the longer term. Circles Initiative also assists children and young people living with disability to develop and maintain meaningful friendships to experience mateship and a greater sense of belonging. Circles Facilitators work with families to create regular opportunities for neighbourhood friends to hang out together, as well as assisting young people to join local clubs and community groups. Other benefits include peer support and mentoring to help think through life’s opportunities and challenges.
