Circles of Support Training

A Circle of Support, sometimes called a Circle of Friends, is a group of people who meet together on a regular basis to help somebody accomplish their personal goals in life. The Circle acts as a community around that person (the 'focus person') who, for one reason or another, is unable to achieve what they want in life on their own and decides to ask others for help. The focus person is in charge, both in deciding who to invite to be in the Circle, and also in the direction that the Circle's energy is employed, although a facilitator is normally chosen from within the Circle to take care of the work required to keep it running.
