Cumbria and Lancashire

Cumbria Circles logoCircles North West in Cumbria and Lancashire was initially established in Cumbria in 2009 thanks to a generous grant from the Cumbrian Quaker Religious Society of Friends and initially set up 6 operational circles around the county. Subsequent funding and support from Cumbria Probation Trust (National Probation Service) enabled the project to be sustained across Cumbria and this was further strengthened when a legacy grant from Lancashire Probation Trust enabled a further 3 circles in North Lancashire.

Circles North West is a project of CROPT, Cumbria Reducing Offending Partnership Trust, a registered charity committed to assisting those who have committed criminal offences lead more responsible, positive and offence free lives and establish themselves as a valuable part of their community. The website is http://cropt.org.uk/

Big Lottery Fund logoA recent Big Lottery Fund Award to extend Circles Projects around the country has allowed Circles North West to undertake expansion and we will be looking to set up 13 new circles around the county of Lancashire over the next 4 years, the first of these has successfully started in the Blackburn area. We are actively seeking volunteers in the Lancashire area and would like to hear from those who may have an interest in;

  • Helping a sexual offender to reintegrate safely into the community
  • Acting as a support and safety mechanism for both the sexual offender and the community
  • Being an active element in the public protection framework to enhance the safety of the community as a whole

We can be contacted by email: janet.mccormick@cropt.org.uk or by phone; 07860 920402.
