I think that CIRCLE have helped an awful lot of vulnerable people and every single person that I have worked with within CIRCLE does so with a compassionate approach alongside practical solutions.
Professional
Circle helped mum go to school and sort out issues like bullying and struggling to socialise. Also got me to young carers. Helped mum with going to appointments that she struggled to go to on her own.
Young Person
The best thing is having someone that listens and helps. Made me feel like I had someone to talk to.
