BUILDING FRIENDSHIP CIRCLES
Building Circles works to transform the lives of people with learning disabilities who are isolated and lonely. They currently support over 280 people with learning disabilities, many with no friends or family, and only paid staff in their lives. They are a fun and dedicated charity who are passionate about changing lives.
There are many volunteer opportunities available:
• Befriending – forming a one-toone friendship with a matched focus person and doing all the simple things in life that most of us take for granted. • Fundraising – helping raise some much needed funds
• Active Friends – visiting a focus person for a cup of tea/coffee as part of your daily run/training routine
• Care to Grow – for the volunteers who love to garden, the charity has two allotments in Cheltenham and Gloucester • Social Events/activities – go along to help at their regular social events where you are guaranteed fun, laughter and a slice of cake or two.
They offer full training, all expenses paid and the support of a dedicated volunteer coordinator on hand, whenever you need them. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01452 617346. www.buildingcirclesglos.org.uk
