Building ‘Your Circle’ – helping you to live independently

‘Your Circle’ is your support network of trusted people, places and services, created by you. We often build circles of support to help make our lives a little easier and we want to help you to develop an even stronger circle to help you live an independent life for as long as possible.

To help you do this Gloucestershire County Council has developed a website which gives you access to a wide range of advice and support available in Gloucestershire. It brings together all
those things that help you keep your independence, including local clubs, financial advice, volunteer opportunities, support groups, help in your own home and much more – ultimately helping you get more out of life.

If you haven’t got access to the internet at home, you may want to visit an Information Point, for example in an internet café, community group or library. Or why not get a friend, family member or trusted contact to help you?

Visit and start to explore the local support available.
