Circles of Support take shape in many different ways.

They can be big or small.

They may meet one regular basis or perhaps only when they feel it is needed.

They may meet in a meeting room or in the local pub.

They may have a minute taker or they may have someone to write up what is discussed on flipchart using images.

They may communicate via email, telephone, face to face, via facebook or perhaps even their own website.

What is important is that group get together because they have a genuine interest in the reason they are meeting.

My circle will not always stay the same but I have a core group of people.
