To mark 10 years of Circles in England and Wales this year’s event in November was a variation from the norm. An internal event rather than an open conference, to thank the Circles volunteers and to recognise an extraordinary decade of Circles provision and development since the first tentative Circle of Support and Accountability were set up by the Lucy Faithfull Foundation, and Hampshire and Thames Valley Circles Project back in 2002.
"Ever Increasing Circles?" Strengthening the community of Circles of Support and Accountability and their partners.
The Circles UK annual national conference was held at the Priory Rooms meeting and conference centre in Birmingham on 20th October 2010. We were delighted to have over 170 delegates in attendance, including a number from across Europe and beyond, all of whom contributed to making the day both thought-provoking and energising.
