Circle Family Support Plans are one tool that Circle uses and are developed in conjunction with family members; these help to set, guide and review short, medium and long term goals. Through these observable change is identified and positive outcomes noticed by the family members and others in wider systems i.e. school, work, community. There is no one size fits all; each family composition and context is unique. Intervention can increase and decrease in terms of intensity on identifying need, taking into account feedback from the family and stakeholders and guided by Circle’s staff supervision. The ultimate aim is that family members can sustain meaningful change without the ongoing need for family support, developing sustainable coping strategies and knowing when and how to access additional support. A long term trusting relationship is the context for change.
