Volunteer Community Circles Facilitators

At present, this initiative is London-based only.

Volunteer Community Circle Facilitators:

  • Meet with someone and the people they care about (their ‘circle’), every 4-6 weeks, usually for an hour, for 12 months
  • Use listening and questioning skills, and clear thinking, to help the group make positive change happen 
  • Volunteer in their local area, at a time that suits them, and are matched with someone based on shared interests and availability
  • Receive full training, ongoing support, and travel expenses 
  • Do not need previous experience of working with people with learning disabilities

Community Circles have helped people to make new friends, develop relationships, find paid or voluntary work, reconnect with their faith community, and more.

You can choose to be a Community Circles Facilitator if you want to bring people together, and you like being with a small group of people to make change. If you’d prefer to work on a 1:1 basis with someone to enable them to do more activities and go to more places, you might prefer to be a Volunteer Buddy.

Watch the short video below in which our Volunteering Manager explains the difference between Volunteer Buddies and Facilitators.
