The Jewish Circles of Support Project

The Jewish Circles of Support Project will be holding an information evening on 16th June for parents and other family members of children and adults living with a disability.

Circles of support involves a small number of people coming together regularly to provide support to a person with disability they care about. Ten families in the Jewish community have initiated a circle of support and have commented that the circle provides a framework for others to be involved in a structured way, helps them think laterally about issues in the person's life and creates a feeling of optimism about the future. 

At the evening parents will hear about what a circle of support is, how it can be beneficial to a person with disability and their family and how the Circles Project can assist families to develop and sustain a circle of support. A number of family members who already have circles of support will be there to talk about their experiences and answer questions.
