What We Do

Be part of Building Circles

We welcome anyone in Gloucestershire 18 years+ who has a learning disability, and who is also socially isolated/lonely.  

Referrals can be made directly to us from carers, family members, local authority, health services or by the person themselves.

All volunteers and focus people are invited to our social events, plus we have extra weekly activities: a community choir, cookery workshops and allotment sessions. Find out more here.

We also have an amazing team of volunteers who we match on a one-to-one basis with someone who would really like a friend of their own - and we have seen many friendships flourish over the years.

All of our services are free of charge - after all, why should anyone have to pay for friendship?

If you would like to find out more about us then please contact us via phone or email for a referral form, or download here. 


For additional support, please visit the Ableize website -

They are owned and run by people with disabilities and their site is a virtual library of UK disability resources.

We get on really well, enjoy going out together and both have a sense of humour
