The Friendship Circle
The Friendship Circle was set up in order to bridge a major gap in the social provision for people with disabilities in Manchester. The charity now offers companionship to over 100 children and adults with physical and learning disabilities in the Manchester community by providing five social activities and programmes every week. Volunteering is fundamental in this work and the charity now has over 100 volunteers, of which over 90% are teenagers. The Friendship Circle hopes to give them valuable work experience whilst helping them to develop into well balanced, empathetic individuals.
