Circles Network - This service is not direct access as referrals are made via Peterborough City Council.
Circles Network is a UK wide voluntary organisation renowned for building inclusive communities on the foundations of justice, advocacy, empowerment and friendships.
Circles Advocacy provides professional, independent person centred advocacy for young people and adults from a number of our hubs across the UK, in some areas we provide Advocacy for children under the age of 16. In many areas this work is commissioned through contracts with the NHS and local councils and is therefore cost free to the individuals who might need it. Our approach to advocacy is carefully constructed to enable the person (or their chosen advocate) to express their views and choices on a wide range of issues relating to their lives and to ensure that their voice is heard by the people they may need to relate to. With over 20 years of providing, growing and developing advocacy our advocacy teams are highly trained and experienced.
Circles Academy is an essential segment of Circles Network and is open to participants of all ages. As a learning organisation we are always looking for information and development opportunities that feed our desire for global knowledge and dissemination of matters relating to inclusion, well-being and community cohesion. The academy operates throughout the UK and beyond as courses are offered in a variety of settings and increasingly online.
Circles equine run a range of projects for children, young people and adults who want to work alongside horses and ponies to develop and grow through therapeutic and educational opportunities, using equine facilitated learning, natural horsemanship skills, neurolinguistics programming, pony centred life coaching, mindfulness, tapping and other wonderful approaches that blend in unique and powerful ways to inspire positive change.
3D Community Support is a unique service which aims to help people in the community to live rich and fulfilling lives. Our facilitators work one to one with people to understand what they want out of their lives, achieve goals and help them to overcome barriers and find solutions. We take time to really listen to what people want and need to improve their lives and then we support them to perhaps do something as simple as go shopping, carry out day to day tasks or to plan bigger challenges and changes to get more out of life.

Our days of work have reduced to Monday - Friday and we have reduced the amount of staff we have available temporarily. Again, we will closely monitor and review our opening times and our staffing ratios to meet the needs of those who require our support.
