Circle of Friends

Circle of Friends is a technique that can be used to increase the inclusion of a child or young person. The approach works particularly well in mainstream primary or secondary schools.

Circle of Friends is about building a peer network to support a challenging or vulnerable child / young person who may be experiencing difficulties in forming friendships perhaps due to a disability, behavioural, social or emotional development need. 

West Sussex has co-delivered some Circle of Friends training with Inclusive Solutionstraining video snippets are available on The Local Offer.
