Embedding Community Circles in Support for Older People Living in Residential Care Homes or Extra Care

26/04/19

For the last two years Community Circles have been working with Wigan
Council and the providers of residential care and extra care support in
the Borough to explore how Circles can help increase person and
community centred support.

Community Circles took their early learning about how Circles could
work and help in these kinds of support and embedded them across Wigan.
They are working currently with 19 care homes and 3 extra care services,
both directly with individual services and via geographical hubs.

The resource is an interactive PDF which describes the why, what and
how of the work to date, shares results and learning to date. Linking
off from the main paper are many more detailed materials – tools,
handbooks, examples, stories.
