Build Your Circle

Building a circle of support is a simple way of putting things in place that can make life easier.

Build Your Circle is for adults who are struggling with the practical aspects of day-to-day life, and for those who care for them.

All the ideas focus on the many different ways people can stay happy at home and in their communities for longer.

We want people to know about all these things before they think about paying for costly care services.
