What are Circles of Support?

Circles of Support are designed to wrap around families increasing their capacity and build local peer networks reducing isolation and improving mental health. The collaboration will ensure professional services are available to guide and support the work of the Circle of Support volunteers.

Circles of Support will provide peer led hands on support in two focus areas.

1. Village Morning Tea
For parents with disability we run village morning teas every week across Mandurah, Rockingham, Kwinana and Cockburn providing an opportunity to increase social engagement and build peer networks targeting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, CALD and young parents.
2. All Abilities Playgroups 
For young children with disability, we run community led universal playgroups through building capacity in existing groups to support children with disability.
