The two-day Coordinator Forum took place at the Woodbrooke Centre in Birmingham. This was an opportunity for Coordinators to get together with their colleagues from each of the Providers in the Circles family and have the opportunity to network and share ideas. Four Providers gave presentations: Circles East, a National Probation Service Provider, talked about the range of programmes available, past and present for those who cause sexual harm. Circles South East gave an update on the National Open College Network Volunteer award and encouraged other Providers to sign their Volunteers up. Re:shape talked about a Circle they are delivering for Glebe House and Circles South West showed a short film on their work with Young People.

To mark 10 years of Circles in England and Wales this year’s event in November was a variation from the norm. An internal event rather than an open conference, to thank the Circles volunteers and to recognise an extraordinary decade of Circles provision and development since the first tentative Circle of Support and Accountability were set up by the Lucy Faithfull Foundation, and Hampshire and Thames Valley Circles Project back in 2002.
