Sutton Mencap launches exciting new project: Circles of Support

Sutton Mencap is delighted to welcome Jude Okeke as the manager for Circles of Support, a brand new project aimed at adults with a learning disability, their family, friends and carers.

Funded by the James Trust, the project will help people to build a support network, a Circle of Support, to help them accomplish their personal visions or goals.
Family, friends and paid workers can all be part of an individual’s ‘circle of support and it is hoped that this personal approach will result in the development of long-lasting friendships and on-going connections within the community.
Manager of the Circles of Support project, Jude Okeke said: 
“Having spent the past 15 years working in older people’s services, this is a new challenge for me, and one I’m very excited about.  I love having the opportunity to continue to work in my local community here in Sutton, and to be back on the ‘front-line’, developing such a person centred project. 
Over the next few weeks I plan to meet with parents and carers and professionals to learn more from them about how the project could work for them.” Initially we can help to facilitate a circle and can will offer training and ongoing support to individual circle facilitators.
