For many people with a disability, the gathering of people who can imagine, create and advocate for a better life is crucial. The idea of an active support network is really an old idea in our society. For people with disabilities, Circles of Support is an idea and practice that has been around for over 25 years. It is not a service or program but rather a group of people who are intentionally invited to come together in friendship and support of a person with disability, for the purpose of protecting their interests into the future and achieving their goals.
Support and Resources will be available for those in the ACT who want to establish a Circle of Support.
