Can you Imagine a life without friends or family?

Here at Building Circles in Gloucestershire, we know that there are lots of adults with Learning Disabilities living in the community who have few or no friends or family to visit them. Problems with health, mobility or communication can make people feel even more isolated and unable to go out and live the fulfilling life that we all deserve to live.

Building Circles in Gloucestershire recruit, train and support volunteers to create friendships with isolated adults with a learning disability. Our volunteers are very special people who are friendly, patient and willing to listen. With a Building Circles volunteer, people are able to go and do the things that most of us take for granted such as going to a cafe for lunch, watching a new film at the cinema, taking a walk in the country, or visting new places.

We also hold regular social events and get everybody together for fun, laughter, and entertainment, our popular events such as our Xmas Party attracts over 120 people.  We also hold specialist events for our focus people with severe needs (a group which so often get overlooked in life), and our younger focus people (aged 18-25).

In addition we also offer training to people with learning disabilities, employ an admin assistant with a learning disability and are about to launch a new transitions project giving young people access to work experience and life skills. 

 Our organisation is completely not for profit and we survive on grants from other organisations and donations from kind people like you to survive! 

We believe everybody should be able to live as a valued member of the community and experience friendship, please help us to reach out to as many people as we can.

Thank you from all of the Building Circles Team
